Rouvan Silogix named new Artistic Director


The Board of Directors of Modern Times Stage Company are delighted to announce that Rouvan Silogix will become the company’s next Artistic Director. Rouvan will succeed Soheil Parsa, who announced last April he would be stepping down after 31 years of artistic leadership.

On behalf of the board of directors, I am pleased to announce that Rouvan Silogix has been unanimously selected to lead Modern Times as the next artistic director,” said Board Chair charles c. smith. “Rouvan brings extensive experience in theatre, working at the cutting edges of identities, marginalization and power. His use of stories and theatre techniques are exciting and will certainly add to the legacy Modern Times has set over the past three decades.”

Rouvan Silogix is an award-winning immigrant Pakistani-Tanzanian writer, director, performer, and classical pianist. His work primarily explores imaginative forms of art, often reimagining classical texts, digging into the profound and complex sociopolitical issues of our times.

I'm deeply humbled at the prospect of succeeding Soheil, and his historic work - and extremely excited to lead and evolve Modern Times into its next chapter,” Rouvan said. “My aim is to continue creating space and opportunity for radical, diverse, and immi-grant artists to do what we love - creating, engaging, and connecting art with the human soul - in all the progressive ways, shapes and forms our present and future possibilities can manifest themselves."

Welcome Rouvan!
