Learning Farsi on Teheran ro (테헤란로)

This performance is about falling in love while being between languages and lands. A diplomatic connection made by the mayor of Seoul and the mayor Tehran in 1976 marked more than the name of streets. It began a journey of learning ways to love myself through understanding a language that in the United States felt distant and foreign.  In Learning Farsi on Teheran ro (테헤란로) I narrate the ways Farsi cannot quite be translated into English but in a Korean context created new understandings and space for a deeper understanding of possible identities and relationships.
