Italian theater expert and choreographer Claudia Castellucci will direct a play in Iran in collaboration with the Iranian troupe Moj. "In a meeting I had with Castellucci in Italy, we agreed to produce and stage a play with Iranian actors in Iran," Moj leader Arash Abbasi told the Persian service of MNA on Sunday.
This joint project is scheduled to be staged in autumn.
"The troupe will be doing rehearsals in a desert and this is why we chose autumn for its cooler weather," he added.
A number of seminars have also been arranged by Castellucci to be held during her stay, Abbasi said.
The Italian expert has already held several workshops in Iran.
Castellucci along with her brother Romeo and two siblings Chiara and Paolo Guidi established an experiential theater company in 1981.
The company, which is named "The Societas Raffaello Sanzio" and has performed in various venues across Europe, is based near Bologna, Italy where it has its own theater.
Castellucci is also the author of "The Theater of Societas Raffaello Sanzio", which is about the background and development of the company.
