Amid The CloudsFrom the waters of the Ghara Ghaj to the English Channel, Imour remembers one image: being breast fed by his mother. That was the last time he saw her. Now, he just wants to get to England.

Amid the Clouds was developed by Amir Reza Koohestani during the 2004 Royal Court International Residency. First produced for the International Fadjr Festival in 2005, it has since been touring European Festivals.
