Iran Theater- Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Babian said that the cultural and artistic space is the breathing valve of the human soul and added:” There are currently 1 million square meters of 621 cultural and artistic complexes in the country, and 278 complexes of 8,00 square meters are under construction, so it is a long way to reach 1.6 million square meters.
Seyed Abbas Salehi, on Thursday at the inauguration ceremony of the first Mashhad Theater Complex, said: High Council of Urban Planning and Architecture considers artistic and cultural space in the country at least one square meter for five people. These statistics show that we are in poverty in the area of artistic and cultural complexes and places.”
He continued: Although performing arts in the country have had a growing track record in terms of titles, performances and number of audiences, the current situation is not satisfactory.”
The Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance emphasized: “Last year 7,200 performing arts were performed in 86,000 times in different provinces, which was watched by eight million people.”
At the end, he said: Mashhad has been Iran's oldest performing arts base since the seventies and it needs to be transformed into a performing arts hub in the country and in the Islamic world by developing its infrastructure.”
