‘The Blind Owl’ is a classic Iranian novel. In short it could be called ‘existentialist psycho horror”. Dynamic and structure of the book are very well suited for a radioplay-treatment. The approach is quite ‘psychedelic’ in a sinister way; a mixture of ‘radio brut’, multiple personality disorder-in-the-age-of-spam-kind of voices over a deconstructed story that still tells the orginal tale. This radioplay was one of the first plays the (later called) Klangendum team made. It was also played live several times.
First broadcast; March 6th, 2006, Café Sonore, VPRO radio.
