Motus O Dance Theatre captivated the audience with its performance of “Prisoner of Tehran” on Tuesday evening at the Townshend Theatre. The latest instalment in the “Tour de Fort” entertainment series saw the troupe tell the affecting story of Iranian teenager Marina Nemat, who was imprisoned and tortured for more than two years following the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Nemat came to Canada in 1991 and has since been an active human rights’ advocate.
