Who is A-Alavi?
Actually to be honest with you, I don’t know much about A.Alavi. I met him many years ago in TLV. He introduced himself as A.Alavi, which was kind of weird, cause his name was almost like mine, Amin Alavi. So we started to talk or in fact, he started to talk. Mostly about himself. The funny thing was that although I could hear the sentences and understood the words he was saying and they made perfect sense in a grammatical sense, I had no idea what he was talking about.

When I first met him, he had three options: To stay and fight, to escape and hide or to end it all.
Sometimes you find yourself in a cross road where you have to choose. The problem is that you don't know what each choice may lead to.
In this interactive show, you and the A.Alavi Show will pursue three existential choices to the end.
The music is improvised, the stories are inclusive and the set up is simple.
