The Scarlet Stone on tour

The Scarlet Stone

The Scarlet StoneAfter a four year hiatus, The Scarlet Stone (MAP 2010) returns to the stage. The Scarlet Stone is a multidisciplinary and collaborative music/dance/animation work created by Shahrokh Yadegari in collaboration with Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam.

The Scarlet Stone is based on Ferdowsi’s epic poem Shahnameh and on the last work of poet Siavash Kasrai, Moher-ye Sorkh (Scarlet Stone). Bridging traditional artistic values with expressive modern aesthetics, the work uses a contemporary rendition of 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, told in the language of dance-theatre.
