“Dude, you’re so Kooni.”

His parents left Iran over 30 years ago in search for a better life for their children. Going back to Iran now could result in mandatory military service and even, death. But what if they hadn’t made that selfless choice? What would his life look like? This Canadian ‘Kooni’ contrasts his life in Canada with an imagined one in Iran, integrating the two worlds through live performance and video.

Izad last visited Halifax in 2015 with his comedic hit Love With Leila, which is currently on stage at OUTstages in Victoria.
