Rumi's Caravan Returns to Oakland
For seventeen years Rumis Caravan has inspired audiences by weaving together poems by Rumi, Hafez, Machado, Rilke, Yeats, Mary Oliver, Joy Harjo, Naomi Shihab Nye, David Whyte and other poets from cultural and spiritual traditions across the world. The presenters create an improvised poetic conversation with musical accompaniment. Moving through moods of prayer and grief to humor and celebration, the Caravan always highlights the beauty of the spoken word. This year we will feature a performance by an inspired Sufi dancer.
This performance is a benefit for the Middle East Children's Alliance (www.mecaforpeace.org).
