From the mystic East comes an epic tale befitting Romeo and Juliet, a tale of love between a Sufi Shaikh, a Christian maiden, and a simple love that grows despite the divisions of their beliefs.
A dance drama performed by the Simorgh Dance Collective.
The story is as follows: San’an, a celebrated sheikh, spends 50 years of his life studying God, eventually acquiring a following of 500 disciples, fell in love with a Christian maiden, Tarsa. San’an abandons all he has to follow this girl and journeys to Rome in search of Tarsa. When his disciples hear about this, they pray to God that Shaikh San’an would return to the right path.
The language will be in Farsi with English subtitles.
