Javaad Alipoor Company (UK) & Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta
Things Hidden Since the Foundation of the World is an investigation into an iconic murder and an investigation into the nature of investigation. In a world of murder mystery podcasts, wikipedia and an Internet that presents everything in the world as knowable, we need to understand that some worlds never collide.
A world where the guy serving you in a grocers is bigger than Tom Jones, the world where you can be killed for what you sing, the world of everyday life where a hit squad only belongs in the movies.
Fereydoun Farrokhzad, Middle East's greatest popstar of the ‘70s, think Tom Jones or Freddy Mercury. By 1981 he was a refugee: working in a German grocers. Six months before being found brutally murdered in an unsolved case, he performed to sold out audiences over two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
