Til Lalezar Theatre creates comic, character-driven physical performance. Founders Tone Haldrup Lorenzen (DK), Vida Taybati (IR), and Grace Booth (USA) met in California when training together at Dell’arte International's MFA Program. Their cultural differences and creative similarities make for combustible, exciting collaboration. On a voyage to Indonesia during their final year at Dell'Arte, the three began to dream about the future and Til Lalezar Theatre was born!
Lalezar Street was the "Broadway of Iran," full of music and cabaret in the early twentieth century. Inspired by the Champs-Elysees of Paris, Lalezar was a street of cultural intersection, performance, and intellectualism before the revolution. Today, Lalezar Street is a line of commercial storefronts and abandoned theaters. "Til," meaning "to" in Danish, is our direction. Til Lalezar! This is our dream: to create places where cultures meet in a joyous, hilarious, theatrical uproar.
