It is also based on the storytelling fundamentals of Scheherazade and the 1001 Nights. Its combination with the techniques and tunes of contemporary performance and dance adds to its bitter humor. MonoTalkhak (Me and the Clown) is a story about an eternal clown who is wandering around with the last king of the world, and tries to make a living and afford the king’s dialysis by performing shows. As the clown says, the last king of the world is now aged and vulnerable, and his skin cannot be exposed to the sun. He sits on a wheelchair and is covered by a sheet so that the audience would not see him. The clown narrates the story of his bizarre, weird, funny, sad life during the play. You are invited to a special auction at the end of this show! Elixir of life Poster Designed by Shokouh Ahmadi @ Studio Tehran
