Astad Deboo, pioneer of Indian contemporary dance, will collaborate with musician Yukio Tsuji for an innovative evening of movement and music. This concert will mark the first performance of Eternal Embrace, an original dance inspired by the poem "Maati," written by Sufi poet Hazrat Bulleh Shah. Embodying the poem's central themes, their piece will explore the tensions between annihilation and infinity, the ephemeral and the material worlds. Yukio will provide musical accompaniment on zither, shakuhachi flute, and percussion.
Made possible by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art and The Persepolis Foundation.
