Scarlet Stone is a multidisciplinary and collaborative dance/theatre/music/animation work by Shahrokh Yadegari, in collaboration with Shahrokh Moshkin-Ghalam, featuring performances by some of the most acclaimed artists of the Iranian diaspora. Scarlet Stone is based on the Shahnameh by Ferdowsi and the last work of Siavash Kasrai, Moher-ye Sorkh (Scarlet Stone). Using advanced theatrical audio visual approaches such as interactive projections and surround sound, Scarlet Stone is a modern rendition of the ancient Persian mythology by Ferdowsi and Kasrai to portray the current struggle of the people of Iran, especially those of the youth and women, in their brave quest for freedom and democracy.
