Presented by Baha'i Communities of Subiaco and Nedlands
Based on an inspiring true story from 19th century Persia, this is the story of Tahirih, the first martyr for women’s suffrage.
A fresh and original one-woman play, Untie My Perfumed Hair is written and performed entirely by the critically acclaimed Delia Olam. Seamlessly portraying all five characters, Olam also sings, in haunting and unique style, her own original music to accompany Tahirih’s poetry.
"The appearance of such a woman… is in any country and any age a rare phenomenon. But in such a country as Persia it is a prodigy, nay, almost a miracle."
- Professor EG Browne, 19th century British Orientalist
Untie My Perfumed Hair has been an audience favourite and multiple award-winner at both Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals.
"Olam’s performance is a deliciously full-bodied experience… Fluid performance… A privilege… Olam has an instinct for story-telling and character development… DO NOT MISS."
