Event

Dances Under the Crescent Moon
ANAR DANA: Helene Eriksen's Traditional Dance Theatre presents women's dance and culture from the regions of North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. ANAR means pomegranate and DANA seed; the name symbolizes the crystalline beauty of collective traditions...where each kernel is unique and luminous, yet together they form a fruit that is celebrated in the Middle East as a symbol of beauty, fertility and culture. The ancient traditions of these predominately Muslim societies are largely unknown in the West and are disappearing quickly in our globalizing world. Our view of the cultures of the Muslim world are skewed by clich├ęs, deep seated fears and current wars. ANAR DANA brings these breathtaking and inspiring traditions into a new focus for a wider audience through professional dance concerts with spectacular music and costumes.

Every year in September a new group of women begin on the ten-month long journey that is ANAR DANA: meeting once a month for an intensive twelve-hour weekend workshop. This year's repertoire includes songs and dances from Bulgaria, a 19th century neo-classical Mystical Persian dance, a dance from the Roma of Turkey, dances from Iran, Morocco, Palestine, Uzbekestan, and more!
