CROWN//تاج

Event details

23 February at 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

£8.00 | 14+

CROWN//تاج is the UK’s first touring production combining classical Persian dance, contemporary dance, and Sufi movement to tell a story of displacement, identity, and body sovereignty to an original soundtrack of live classical music and electronica.

Maria Tarokh directs this female-led production on its inaugural tour. The cast feature brilliant contemporary and classical dancers and virtuoso classical Persian musicians to bring you a moving, exhilarating, and energetic experience.
CROWN//تاج is a manifestation of female strength; it is an opportunity to reclaim what we lose through displacement. Using Persian miniatures, lived experience and the poetry of Forough Farrokhzad, the 3 lead dancers take the audience on a journey from determination through struggle to release. Finding courage, resilience, and joy along the way.

CROWN is a celebration of the transformation which takes place when we realise home is within ourselves.

Co-produced by Dartington Arts and commissioned by Counterpoints Arts. Supported with funding
from Arts Council England.

There will be a post-show Q&A.
