Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran
The Javaad Alipoor Company
“Breaks all the rules of theatre behaviour. Riveting” **** The Times
“Dazzling. Delves below compellingly shocking behaviour to lay bare an epoch-spanning vision of human waste.” **** The Guardian
As the global gap between rich and poor grows and humanity’s destructive impact on the earth rampages on, so does the allure to watch the carnage unfold on social media. From the company behind the award-winning play The Believers Are But Brothers comes a darkly comedic virtual experience about entitlement, consumption, and digital technology through the lens of Iran’s elite.
Rich Kids explores the cycles of historic decline and rebirth and the ways societies try to reproduce themselves. Winner of the 2019 Scotsman Fringe First Award and created by artist, writer, and activist Javaad Alipoor and director/dramturg Kirsty Housley, this biting new play repurposes Instagram to explore what’s happening around the world in interactive and innovative ways.
Rich Kids is presented on YouTube and also, simultaneously, on Instagram.
