Vali’s Video Clip to Be Unveiled

A video-clip made by late Iranian actor, writer and theater director Jafar Vali (1933-2016) will be unveiled soon at Sangalaj Theater in Tehran.
The video-clip is made on the basis of the photos taken from Vali’s theatrical works. It is a brief account of his professional experience, Theater Online reported.
“The only remnant of my 60 years in theater is a photo collection which I show” in the clip. The video, made and edited by Vali himself, is to be unveiled at a commemoration ceremony on February 4.
Theater actor Ali Bigham has organized the event to honor the memory of his friend and colleague. “The ceremony which starts at 4 pm features live music programs and play reading. Theater and film actor Khosrow Ahmadi will present the event,” Bigham told Mehr News Agency.
In the last months of his life, Vali was preparing to stage ‘Whisper in My Sound Ear,’ a play about the last day of two old men. “The play has two characters, two old migrant men who decide to commit suicide. But first, they want to enjoy the last day of their lives to the fullest,” Vali had told ISNA in November 2016, a month before his death on December 17.
It is now one of the two plays, parts of which are scheduled for reading at the ceremony. 
The other is ‘40 Days Before Ascent,’ a drama written by Armenian playwright Samuel Khalatian and translated into Persian by author, literary translator and theater director Andranik Khachoumian. Both plays were on Vali’s to-do-list.
When Vali was directing ‘Whisper in My Sound Ear’, the roles of the suicidal old men were rehearsed by actors Hormoz Hedayat and Iraj Rad, both 72. The two veteran actors will now participate in the ceremony to read their parts. 
As for ‘40 Days Before Ascent’, the text will be read by thespians Mohammad Ali Sareban, 69, Nahid Moslemi, 61, Soroush Taheri, 34, Mohammad Reza Maleki, 36, Elaheh Shahparast, 31, Vahid Razzaqi, 46, Masoud Rahimpour, 37, and Shamsi Sadeqi. 
Sangalaj Theater, one of the oldest theater halls in Tehran, is located south of Park-Shahr on Behesht Street.
