Performing Scarlet Stone (Mohreye Sorkh) Past

Aug 21-23, 2015 - Toronto, ON, Canada

Friday, 21 August 2015 - 8:30pm
Saturday, 22 August 2015 - 3:00pm
Sunday, 23 August 2015 - 4:30pm

Scarlet Stone is a new multidisciplinary and collaborative music/dance/animation work told in the language of dance-theatre. The piece will be based on the last work of Siavash Kasrai, Moher-ye Sorkh (Scarlet Stone). Modern rendition of the ancient Persian mythology by Kasrai is used to portray the current struggle of the people of Iran, especially those of the youth and women, in their brave quest for freedom and democracy. As artists of the Iranian diaspora, the goal is to make this project directly relevant to the current political and social climate of Iran.
