A theater hall just for social theatre/ Shahrokhi and Youneszadeh talk about Fanous

Hoaronline's theater service: Fanous is one of the newly founded private theater halls, located in a relatively old building in an alley near Hafte-Tir Square. It has a black box theater hall with a capacity of 50 people and is equipped with a control room, a makeup room, optical devices room and ventilation. This hall is run under Fanous Art & Culture institute( House) by the artist couple Morteza Youneszadeh and Neda Shahrokhi.

We talked with Neda shahrokhi and Morteza Yooneszdeh who are in charge of this theatre institute to know more about the institute, its characteristics, needs and further purposes.

Talking about the process of founding this theatre hall with Honaronline correspondent, Neda Shahrokhi who is the artistic manager of the complex and a student of theatre PhD studying in France said: Fanous is actually a multipurpose cultural and artistic institute that started working in 2013 and the theatre hall started working with play I directed, "Man's a man" by Bertolt Brecht.

Declaring the capacity, features and facilities of this theater hall she said: Fanous was actually an old house, we repaired its first floor and made a theater hall out of it. What made us turn the place into a theater hall was that it had a good width. This hall has a capacity of 50 spectators and is 6 meters wide, 10 meters long and 7 meters deep. Although such good facilities do not exist in most private halls, we tried to provide standard possibilities for this hall.

Social drama genre and addressing women's issues are priorities of this theater hall


In an interview with the cultural reporter of the journalism club, Neda Shahrokhi, the artistic director of Fanous Art & Culture institute said: This center is negotiating with various schools in France, Germany and Switzerland to hold workshops for theater and movies.

She added that in this center a workshop is held every 4 months in various fields of theater and cinema. At the end of each course, participants will be awarded diploma from the school of contracts which are internationally recognized. This center also tries to promote the fields on which little or no work has been done in the form of workshops with professional instructors.

Shahrokhi also said this institute has held two acting workshops in cooperation with the Point Fixe school in Paris: 1. Poetic acting 2. Looking for the inner clown 3. Neutral mask. Some 18 people participated in each of these workshops and at the end received a degree of completion from that school.

It is required to note that the professor of these courses was Dominique Dupoux Vaudeville from Point Fixe school.
