      Théâtre la Seizième will present writer-director and performer Mani Soleymanlou's ZÉRO at the Scotiabank Dance Centre from February 9 to 12.

      In this autobiographical work, the Montreal-based artist of Iranian descent dissects the many facets of his identity and questions himself about the society we live in.

      “What we are trying to do with the company (Orange Noyée) and the shows we make is to stage various questions and doubts," says Soleymanlou in the event info. "It is a way to talk about a subject as large and instrumentalized as identity and attempt to stage a way to think about it, without necessarily arriving at a conclusion or settling it within a specific definition, space, or moment in time.

      "If we can bequeath to the audience a certain way to nuance things and to come out of our current way of looking at the world as binary, if you can bequeath them the pleasure of doubting and questioning, that would be huge.”

      The performances will be in French with English surtitles.
