Run Time: 60 mins

Green Card Project. 

…the applicant was becoming a well adjusted performer as they had to tell several stories to the audience of one (the officer), and also make sure that they are assuming the right personality for their “character”.

…the applicant was never a good actor, or a theater enthusiast to begin with. They in fact would suffer from stage fright every time they were tasked with something as minimal as announcing a short statement to a group of people… But this, this was giving them quite a thrill.

Sohrab Haghverdi

Sohrab Haghverdi is a theatre artist from Tehran, Iran. Since arriving 8 years ago, he has received a Bachelor’s degree in Acting from University of Northern Colorado and a Master's in Devised Performance from Pig Iron/University of the Arts. Isolation even in the presence of others has been a recurring experience for Sohrab as a cancer survivor, a member of a marginalized community, and one of a few Iranian creators in the Philly theatre community. He uses theatre to go to uncomfortable, shameful, fear-invoking places and attempt to take the audience on that journey with him. His goal is to offer an experience that reveals more of himself and those who suffer the same pains.
