Maghsood Salehi is a journalist and collaborator with Seemia Theatre as a dramaturg. He received his MA of Advanced Theatre Practice from RCCSD and his previous works includes site specific performances with the company Dash.

Unattended Objects is a solo multimedia performance exploring identity, migration and the idea of return. Maghsood Salehi draws on his experience as a journalist in exile to travel on an imaginary journey returning to his home, Tehran, in disguise. After a successful first residency at Camden Peoples Theatre, Maghsood aims to use this residency to play with the possibilities of the use of multimedia and sensory aspects to create a visceral piece of performance, culminating in a final draft of the script.

United by their passion for the themes of the performance Maghsood will work with video artist Arash Ashtiani, director Charlotte Slater and academic Pooya Ghoddousi to explore fusing his first hand experience of exile with verbatim stories and digital videos. They aim to create a piece that transports the audience through an immersive experience of memory and nostalgia.
