Helene Eriksen's ANAR DANA Traditional Dance Theatre presents women's dance from the regions of North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. The program includes dance of the Kabyle Berbers of Northern Algeria, "Silent Dances" from Ražanac on the Croatian Dalmatian coast, a dance of the Ottoman Court, a dance from the Georgian mountains, dances of the Assyrian people, a neo-classical Persian dance, and a Balochi henna celebration from Sindh, Pakistan.
The ancient traditions of these predominantly Muslim societies are largely unknown in the West and are disappearing quickly in our globalized world. ANAR DANA brings these breathtaking and inspiring traditions into a new focus for a wider audience through professional dance concerts with spectacular music and costumes.
