It Is Only Sound That Remains - New website!
In August of 2010, Shahrzad Arshadi was selected as the Montreal Life Stories Project 2010-2011 Artist in Residence for her project, "It Is Only Sound That Remains".
Over the last year, Shahrzad has collaborated with sound and performance artists Caroline Künzle and Moe Clark to create a piece of “Sound Theatre” about the life and tragic death of Montreal-based, Canadian-Iranian photojournalist “Ziba” Zahra Kazemi at the hands of Iranian authorities in the summer of 2003. Kazemi’s case gained international attention after she was arrested, tortured into a comatose state, and subsequently died after being removed from life support in an Iranian hospital.
A new website was recently created by Stephan Kazemi, Ziba's son, in order to preserve this innovative work: www.shahrzadarshadi.com/soundtheater/
