The Word that Never Becomes Flesh



»Femmina Balba was an attempt towards failure. According to its own logic, failure itself has failed: not enough, not beautiful enough, not absolute enough, may-be and probab-ly. My awe for Elisa’s achievement still remains. She has unearthed an eye in the darkness of the stomach in order to be able to decipher the writing of Rilke. Theater is the house of the word that never becomes flesh.« –Hamed Taheri, 2016
