Domestic Labour: A Study in Love

Synopsis:
War, bicycles and the withdrawal method. A love story: man and woman, East/West, the mundane and the monumental, the personal and the political, the dust behind the bed and the Iranian baby boom. A love story told through the nitty-gritty of daily life - past girlfriends, marriage, Islamic law and Brigitte Bardot - as a man and his absent wife negotiate the very domestic battle over who does the washing up. Created by award-winning 30 Bird, Domestic Labour is inspired by 1970s feminism and its impact on men. Rich inventive theatricality (WhatsOnstage.com). 30bird.org

Notes:
created by Mehrdad Seyf, and visual artist Chris Dobrowolski

Poland 3 Iran 2

Synopsis:
In 1976, the best ever Polish football team played against the best ever Iranian football team in the Montreal Olympics. Such a clash of talent led to a memorable game with Poland edging to a 3-2 win. Join Seyf and Dobrowolski in the bar for a whistle stop tour of monumental historic events and bizarre personal confessions. Armed only with a Power Point they discuss football, revolution, swimming, love and Subbuteo aided by footage from the match and stills from their family photo albums.
