Dorr-e Dari

Date: 25 Nov 2020

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

Dorr-e Dari is a new theatre work inspired by the tradition of private recitals and ‘curtain shows’ performed throughout the Persian-speaking world. Through intimate storytelling and epic ballads from the streets of Kabul, Tehran and Quetta, via Western Sydney, your hosts Bibi, Jawad and Mahdi are here to guide you on the path to love. Rest assured: there is a verse for every condition of the heart.

Dorr-e Dari is a creation by PYT Fairfield, a professional theatre company in Western Sydney informed by the concept of Radical Kindness and focused on the development of local young and emerging artists as core practice.

From the company that brought you the acclaimed 2018 Sydney Festival work Tribunal comes the latest in a series of works exploring critical issues of our times while challenging the conventions of traditional theatre.
