Livestream will happen here on Saturday, October 24 from 12:30 to 2:30 PM
White House is a live performance that utilizes various domestic objects—all painted white—as props for collaborators Xirin and her partner Sebastian Chacon to use as they play house. Costumed in oversized, white clothing, the performers carry out a series of household tasks while exploring concepts of age, gender, shared consciousness, torture, isolation, and role-playing. 
White House incorporates Chacon’s experience with performance in theater and Xirin’s ongoing investigations on themes such as romance and optimism. The performance includes references to the Iranian prison technique known as “White Torture,” quarantine as a result of COVID-19, and the 2020 Presidential Election.
