Ask Hafiz- Work in Progress-$10
This work has been made possible by Queens Council for the Arts
‘Ask Hafiz’ is performance integrating story-telling, poetry, dance and music. The show tells the immigration story of Sahar’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 answer is revealed through song by Haleh Liza and dance by Malini Srinivasan. Hafez, 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.
