Don Quixote in Virtual Space

Playwright, translator, theater director and actress Sahra Ramezanian, 34, has brought on stage a play in which Cervantes’ character Don Quixote takes up his sword and lance in the virtual space.
The play ‘Don Quixote’ is inspired by an idea suggested by theater actor Amir Oraee who is performing in the show, Honaronline quoted Ramezanian as saying.
“We’ve placed Cervantes’ Don Quixote in the contemporary context. Here, his delusions and false perceptions have found virtual manifestations,” she said.
The ongoing show portrays Don Quixote’s obsession with the Internet. “He suffers from digital depression. Having lost touch with reality, he is deep in his own delusions.”
“I have been concerned about the unrestrained use of the Internet for a long time. I think social media has become an addiction, causing misery for the contemporary human.”
She also referred to the special approach adopted in the arrangement of the decor: “The entire mise en scene involving the thespians entails dynamic lighting and projected images.”
It is a combination of lights and images that changes the scenes and moves the character from one location to another.  
At first glance, Don Quixote may seem to be a solo performance; but complementary roles are projected on the stage via image and sound. The thespians also share good and occasionally happy times; but there is a bitter tragedy underlying the dialogues, with which audiences may sympathize.”
Don Quixote opened on May 11 at Baran Theater in Tehran and will run through July 2 each evening at 5 pm, except Saturdays.  The one-hour play features Oraee in the leading role. Mahdokht Molaee, Iman Isfahani and Milad Kaymaram are the other performers.
