The Iranian Speech
Where: Conflict Kitchen (Schenley Plaza)
When: June 19, 22, 25 2013
We asked Iranians all over the world to write part of a speech they would like U.S. President Barack Obama to deliver. These parts were compiled into a final speech which was delivered by a Obama look-alike in the plaza outside of Conflict Kitchen in several performances. A custom-printed publication of a longer version of the speech is available at our restaurant. Special thanks to all of the Iranians who contributed writing to the speech.
Performer: Markel Vega
Video and Sound: Felipe Castleblanco
Podium: Steve Guyrsh
Writing: Many members of the global Iranian community including Arash Kamangir (others wished to remain anonymous)
