Why See Silk Road Ensemble : Heroes Take Their Stands?
CELEBRATING 20 YEARS WITH A WORLD PREMIERE
Much like its historical namesake, The Silk Road organisation promotes the open exchange of musical knowledge and collaboration, all under the helm of artistic director and founder Yo Yo Ma, the world-renowned cellist. The Silk Road Ensemble, an ever-changing collective of rotating musicians, storytellers and visual artists that blend their cultures to create exciting new works.
This evening of celebration brings together an exciting new work from Ahmad Sadri, an Iranian folklorist who has created a piece that explore the struggles of five iconic heroes from Dr Martin Luther King to Elektra, of Greek mythology, living in the borderlands between opposing cultures and conflicting values.
This five-part blends performance dance, a cultural blend of Silk Road music, puppetry, video and recorded readings to create a journey of discovery through contrasting cultures and landscapes.
