Dastaan with Savar Sabri

5 September 2019, 7pm - 8.30pm

Nottingham Arts Theatre

Sonia Sabri Company brings a truly original performance of live music, dance 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, sitar (India), setar (Iran), harp, vocals and a few surprises!

The show begins with the musicians delving into a journey of personal stories gathered from poets and travellers, inspired by folk music of India, Persia and Wales. This is followed by 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, London.

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

Supported by Birmingham Royal Ballet and The British Library.
