Join us for a multimedia installation exploring common threads in the cultures of the Middle East. Curated by Matti Kovler, composer in residence at the Elie Wiesel Center for Judaic Studies, this performance will bring together Jewish, Persian, Greek, and Indian music and texts on a universal theme: the celebration of dawn. The culminating event in the residency of Persian, Indian and Jewish musicians at Boston University, our installation will include a student choir, dancers, a drumming circle, original poetry, and video art. Soloists: Parham Haghighi (Iran), Deepti Navaratna (India), Tutti Druyan (Israel). Video art by Oleg Bolotov. Lighting display by John Powell. Costumes by Laura Mandel. Featuring original dawn poetry from the Norfolk Men’s Prison collected by Prof. André de Quadros, and from BU poets Zachary Bos and Prof. Sassan Tabatabai. This event is free and open to the public. No tickets required.
