Most of the time this blog is used to talk about all the stuff we find interesting / important, which we don’t cover in our newsletter our live events. Every once in a while we mix it up by telling the blog readers the cool stuff we’re up to. Here’s the latest batch:
Storytelling events in Berlin in May and London in June. The Mezrab Collective will do the music for the Berlin event. The London show will feature the unforgettable Amin and Parham of the Ajam Band. As soon as the final confirmations are made info on the events will appear on the Mezrab site.
The Amsterdam Art Fund (AFK) has pledged its support for our new show Baba Yaga. The show which features pianist Marnix van der Pol playing classical Russian pieces, Marjolein Vogels doing modern interpretations of Russian dance steps and Sahand Sahebdivani telling the tales of the Russian Witch Baba Yaga. The show will be performed this summer in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht as part of the Parade Theater Tour.
And last but not least, we’ve started a new blog called Silk Rope Chronicles. It’s dedicated to Sexuality, acceptance of the LGBT community and Feminism in the Middle East. We’ve got so much to say about those particular issues, we didn’t want to clutter up the Mezrab blog with all the posts. Go forth and spread the word!
