The performance took place during the second international theater festival of Tunisia.   

The group, from Iran’s southwestern province of Khuzestan, performed the Taziyeh in the Arabic language in an open field.

Their performance was received warmly by the audience.


Taziyeh is a passion play, a dramatic performance representing the bravery and sufferings of Imam Hussein (AS), the third Shia Imam, his offspring and valiant companions who fought the mercenary soldiers serving the illegitimate ruler of the time Yazid I.

Today, Ta’ziyeh is performed across Iran as well as countries with Shia Muslim communities.
