Ali Nasirian sent a message to the 33rd Fadjr provincial Theater Festival
According to Iran Theater, based on the announcement of the public relations of the General Directorate of Performing Arts Center, Ali Nasirian sent a message to the 33rd Fadjr provincial Theater Festival which will be held in November in different provinces.
He wrote:” "In the mid-thirties, when the Department of Dramatic Arts was established and we gathered there, attention was gradually drawn to promising shows from the cities.”
For the first time, some of us were sent to Shiraz and Isfahan city for technical and artistic assistance. What we found was a lack of material facilities and, more importantly, a lack of theatrical culture and technical information from acting to directing and writing and stage design. There was no book and no experienced teacher, so talented and enthusiastic young people, relied on their spontaneous talent, worked with the information they received from all over, and occasionally did remarkable work.”
He continued:” As a result, we thought that the first step in helping them was to get acquainted with the basics and principles of theater. We decided to use the graduates of the two theater schools that was in Tehran at that time, so we could established theater training centers in the cities.”
At the same time, theater groups in Tehran traveled to other cities and performed shows that had been performed in Tehran. During these trips, we got acquainted with the youth of the city, and gradually an interesting artistic and cultural connection was established. With these details, the shows .in cities gradually matured and became fertile, and made us think of holding a province theater festival.”
