Persepolis, Texas is the story of how a little girl born to Iranian parents and raised in the suburbs of Texas came to become a drag queen in San Francisco, California. Using narrative, devised movement and drag, Maryam Farnaz Rostami will take us to the Wild West, a nouveau-traditional Iranian living room, a suburban public school, and at Persepolis itself and explore how where we’re from makes who we are.
