Following the success of its premiere performance in 2015, we are thrilled to be remounting. Oyan!/Awakening, an international collaboration between Sashar Zarif and legendary
composer/pianist Franghiz Alizadeh. A mystical journey portraying man's spiritual ascent through body, mind and emotions, Oyan!/Awakening is an innovative investigation of Mugham, a devotional integrated practice of poetry, music and dance, in a contemporary context. This international multi-disciplinary collaboration facilitates an encounter between remembering, perceiving, and imagining in time and space. Azerbaijani Mugham musicians Elnur Mikhayilov and Mirelem Mirelemov will once again join Zarif for this special repeat The program will also include two new works by Zarif: The Forgotten Tale Of Mugham – an intimate solo exploring human experience, memory, body, sound, and rhythms, performed by Zarif; and Inner Exile – an experimental quartet for four Toronto male dancers based on Sufi
and Shamanic rituals exploring the experience of rituals on stage.
