Svetlana Explains it All

Interview

Friday, June 06, 2008

Playwright and performer Iris Bahr is a shape-shifter. Her recent one-woman show "Dai (Enough)" cast her as everyone from a Palestinian mother to a retired Israeli soldier, all sitting in a Tel Aviv café where tragedy is about to strike. She takes the stage at The Getty as Svetlana, a Russian immigrant and world-traveled prostitute. She has some pretty strong opinions about Los Angeles... and her influential "clientele."
