Don’t miss a free performance from Iran on Friday, December 2, at 7pm, “Performance Art Persia.” For more than 20 years, performance artists Ellin Krinsly and Arie van Duijn have collaborated interculturally with diverse cultures to create performances in nature and art houses. Now they bring one of their most intriguing shows from the ancient Iranian island of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf to San Miguel. Based on the story of a mermaid with scythes for fins, a poetic blind musician plays his double flute among salt pillars while traditional actors of the island transform into mythical elves. You’ve never seen anything like it! With a performance history stretching from Indonesia to Mongolia and New York, Ellin and Arie are delighted to be sharing their amazing dance visions with our Shelter audience. Discussion to follow.
