Stories from the East

The NBE is pulling out all the stops to offer you a unique opportunity, experiencing a new NBE-program with old friends: Stories from the East. The two dear Iranian friends Ali Ghamsari (tār) and Haleh Seyfizadeh (vocals), known from the previous program Bach & Sufi, combined with moving storyteller Sahand Sahebdivani who brings to life the stories his parents left behind as political refugees in Iran.

Together, in this unique NBE-performance – about war, flight and hope for a new world – they answer the question: ‘When you flee your homeland, can you pack up your stories and take them with you?’

ALI GHAMSARI VOCALS & TĀR
HALEH SEYFIZADEH VOCALS
SAHAND SAHEBDIVANI NARRATOR

Prior to each concert, Sahand Sahebdivani will provide an introduction around the performance. The introduction is free, but some venues require reservations (see websites theaters for more info).

(Note: Due to circumstances, Mohsen Namjoo (previously announced as guest artist) will not perform during ‘Stories from the East’).
