Dorr-e Dari

Date: 1 Nov 2021

Switch off your dating apps, forget the nightclubs and tune in to a thousand-year tradition of courtly Persian love poetry.

After a sell-out season at Sydney Festival, Dorr-e Dari is coming home to Fairfield, where you’re invited to switch off the dating apps and tune in to a thousand-year-old strong tradition of courtly Persian love poetry.

Inspired by the tradition of private recitals and ‘curtain shows’ performed all through the Persian-speaking world, you will be guided on an intimate storytelling experience following epic ballads from the streets of Kabul, Tehran and Quetta.

Artist Madhi Mohammadi says: “‘Dorr-e Dari’ literally means ‘The Pearl of Dari’ which is the form of Persian that we grew up speaking as Afghan people…. Our language and culture is like this expensive, hidden, precious stone that has survived for thousands of years because it has to be kept in the heart.”
