Ask Hafiz: What We Bring Closing Event

 

Saturday March 2, 2019 | 2pm

At the Queens Central Library 89-11 Merrick Blvd. Jamaica 11432

Closing Exhibit of ‘What We Bring’

Ask Hafiz’ is performance integrating story-telling, poetry, dance and music. The show tells the immigration story of Sahar Muradi’s tumultuous journey from a Soviet-ruled Afghanistan to Queens. Along the way, Sahar, following an age-old practice, asks questions to the book of poetry by Hafiz. The answers are revealed through songs composed and sung by Haleh Liza, dance choreographed and performed by Malini Srinivasan, music by Adam Maalouf, Trina Basu, and Rich Stein.
Hafiz, the 14th century Persian poet and mystic, is an ancient voice connecting the people of South Asia, the Middle East and the US, linking the past to our ever-evolving present.
