Alongside its cultural purposes, the Fanous Art & culture House founded its “ongoing film and theater international workshops center".

For the first time in Iran, this center undertakes to make ongoing plans to hold international educational workshops.
This center makes contracts with schools and different companies from other countries each year . According to these contracts those schools must hold a certain number of workshops in a year in this center in Tehran and give diplomas to participants at the end of the workshop. This diploma is accredited by that school and has international value.
This center tries to hold workshops with the help of professional professors in fields in which little or no work has been done here in Iran.

This center started its activities in 2014.
In the past year, in collaboration with the Point Fixe theatre school led by Dominique Dupoux Vaudeville and the "green princess & pantalon vert" company led by Cindy Clech, we have held eight International Theatre Workshops with some 150 attendees.

Also after the end of the course, this center runs international projects with the students in order to complete the course .
The Fanous international workshops center's first project was Antigone drama directed by Neda Shahrokhi, the cast of which were selected from among these students in consultation with Dominique Dupoux Vaudeville. The show was conducted in October 2015 at the Festival "Olympia in Dion" in Greece and confronted a great welcome.
Future plans of the center will be announced right here on this page.

Further explanation about the schools under contract and workshops can be found like "partner organizations".


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.
