Pari Saberi: Shahnameh Indicates Our National Identity
Pari Saberi believes that Shahnameh is national identity of a land. The experienced director who staged "Rostam's Seven Steps" in the Vahdat hall on Jan 25 and 26, said to Iran Theatre: "I have written Rostam's Seven Steps according to the Rostam's Seven Steps of Shahnameh, and in fact I will stage my own adaptation of the ancient story."
Mentioning that Abraham Esbati has composed the play's music, she said: "I treat music as an actor; the music is always composed as the scene's conditions and demands, because I believe that music and stage production run parallel and it should never be composed before or after the preparation process."
Saberi added: "I do hope that the
production commemorates our national treasure which we have inherited from our
ancestors. Paying attention to what we were is vitally important and I would
like to discover our own root and revive it."
