Abstract

Iran’s Fadjr International Theatre Festival (FITF) is the largest and oldest theatre festival in the Middle East, yet remains among the least studied. Conversations with FITF’s officials and the festival’s international guests reveal the politics and complexities of Iran’s efforts to maintain control of artistic expression while promoting the country’s global autonomy.
