“Tamashagan Institute of Performing Arts is based in Tehran and headed by a Tehran university professor Rahmat Amini. Tamashagan started its work by commemorating International Theater Day in 2016 and it was the only theater company in Iran that celebrated the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death with a special show. The same year the company produced its first theater play “The story of reversed luck”: 

Tamashagan is the first private institute that works on children’s and young adults’ theater in Tehran. This theater institute aims to promote international cooperation with other academics and groups so it has also helped Afghan students in Iran to perform a play in one of Tehran’s theater salons. It is currently working on adaptation of Hamlet in Siyah bazi style (traditional Persian theater form).” - Niloofar Mohtadi.
