Seven Cities of Love Concert Past

Saturday, Oct 10, 2015 ,
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
- Stockport

The Seven Cities of Love Concert is a dramatic music and dance performance led by three of the most distinguished artists from the Persian and Turkish cultures: Davod Azad, Farima Berenji, and Latif Bolat. Together with their colleagues they bring together soul-stirring mystical melodies, and exquisite sacred dances of ancient worlds to illustrate mystical poetry in a tapestry of sound and colour, gesture and motion, word and breath, to touch hearts and to open a window to pure transcendent beauty.

The performance draws inspiration from a masterpiece of classical Persian poetry, Conference of the Birds, by twelfth century Sufi poet Attar of Nishabur. Attar’s mystical allegory, considered the jewel in the crown of Sufi tales, speaks of the journey of the birds through the Seven Cities of Love to meet the king of birds, the glorious Simorgh. This is an exposition of the humanity’s spiritual quest, where all the souls of the world fly through seven spiritual states to seek their divine origin.
