Event description

Description

With Sarvar Sabri (Sonia Sabri Company).

Supported by The British Library and the Birmingham Royal Ballet.

Sonia Sabri Company brings a truly original performance of live music and projected film, Dastaan.

Dastaan meaning a 'story' or 'story of our life', is a riveting experience of live music and visuals. World renowned tabla maestro and composer Sarvar Sabri leads an ensemble of five exquisite musicians of different musical genres playing instruments including tabla, setar (Iran), harp, vocals and a few surprises!

In the first half, the musicians delve into a journey of personal stories gathered from poets and travellers, inspired by folk music of India, Persia and Wales with added hints of jazz.

The second half reveals an emotionally charged film of love, separation, and wonder, explored through the beauty of Persian calligraphy Nasta'liq and poignant dance, seamlessly complemented with live music.

The film features internationally renowned Birmingham Royal Ballet Associate Director Marion Tait CBE and Master calligrapher from Iran, Mehdi Jamali. The film is simply poetry in motion and had its premiere at The British Library.

'Dastaan' is a meeting of interlinked cultures of familiar and unfamiliar lands, celebrating the unique diversity of Britain.
