Dance, Persian

همه هستی من آیه تاریکیست | All my being is a dark verse


Alexis Fletcher & Arash Khakpour

Ballet BC resident artist Alexis Fletcher and Iranian-Canadian dance artist Arash Khakpour undertake a project that marries the artistic disciplines of literature, visual art, and dance by reaching across dance styles, languages, and cultures in the practice of duet. The work, which is part of Chutzpah!’s programming series exploring the work of Jewish and non-Jewish artists of Persian background, is in collaboration with Canadian-Iranian visual artist Nargess Jalali Delia and inspired by the poetry of Farsi poet Forugh Farrokhzad. The piece will be paired with a program of Persian storytelling curated by The Flame.

The audience is invited following the performances to the Sidney & Gertrude Zack Gallery for a facilitated Talkback and casual reception with the artists.

Live Stream on November 10 and On Demand options available. Select November 10 performance to purchase digital tickets.

Patrons wishing to participate in the annual commemoration of Kristallnacht with the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre on November 9th are invited to attend the November 10th performance of the dance work. For more information about the event, visit http://vhec.org/upcomingevents
