Stone Patience is a new work in the early stages of development.
Stone Patience is a physical theatre performance work that tells of a modern day love story between an Iranian man and an Australian woman. He in Australia lives with the title refugee, she in Iran is kharagee (foreigner). The work explores the challenges of a transcultural relationship where Middle Eastern and Western politics and social values impact upon a couple’s freedom if they choose to remain together. Their story is woven into the Iranian Sleeping Beauty fable, Arosake Sange Saboor (The Doll of Stone Patience), inviting audiences to explore the realm of the human heart beyond the context of time, place and culture. In Iran, to say someone has stone patience (sange saboor in Farsi) means that they are patient in listening to the sorrows of another.
