Golden Thread Fairytale Players Present: 21 Days That Change the Year
Golden Thread Productions Fairytale Players presents 21 DAYS THAT CHANGE THE YEAR. This ancient tale from Ferdowsi's Shahnameh (King's Book of Kings)is framed within the 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. 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.
