Prisoner of Tehran

November 19, 2016 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Canadian Museum for Human Rights
85 Israel Asper Way
Winnipeg, MB R3C

Don’t miss the only Winnipeg performance in a cross-country tour based on Marina Nemat’s best-selling book Prisoner of Tehran.

In a unique collaboration between Marina Nemat and Motus O Dance Theatre, this synthesis of a dance, theatre and spoken word brings Marina’s compelling story of oppression and freedom to life.

Marina Nemat was born in 1965 in Tehran, Iran. After the Islamic Revolution of 1979, she was arrested and, at the age of sixteen, spent more than two years in Evin, a political prison in Tehran, where she was tortured and nearly killed. She came to Canada in 1991 and has called this country home ever since. Prisoner of Tehran has been published in 28 countries and is an international bestseller. Marina is one of several human rights defenders whose story is featured in our Rights Today gallery, on level 5.

This performance will be followed by a question and answer period and a book signing at the Museum’s Boutique.

Location: Bonnie & John Buhler Hall
