    21 Days That Change The Year

    Bay Area - San Francisco Friday - March 28, 2014     02:00 PM

    Golden Thread Fairytale Players will present 21 Days That Change The Year at Central Stage on March 29th and 30th, 2pm.

    Performed by Majd Murad and Mohammad Talani
    Directed by Torange Yeghiazarian
    Puppets designed by Mokhtar Paki
    Dance choreographed by Lisa Tateosian

    This delightful performance frames an ancient tale from Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh within contemporary adventures of Dara & Sara, a sister and brother eagerly awaiting the coming of Nowruz. Guided by their sweet but somewhat hard-of-hearing granny, Dara & Sara learn about spring cleaning, setting a traditional Haft-seen table, the fun rituals of Charshanbeh-suri, and the Sizdeh-bedar picnic which concludes the rite of spring ceremonies. This enriching and humorous presentation includes music, dance, storytelling, puppetry, and audience participation. Fusing history and literature with contemporary arts, 21 Days That Change the Year offers a multi-cultural event providing children and their families with the richness of Middle Eastern arts and culture.

    This production runs approximately 30-minutes followed by 20-min Q & A session
    Appropriate for families and children, ages 5-15
    Bring the whole family!
