Niyaz: The Fourth Light
Thursday, Feb 21, 2019 at 8:00 PM - English
AN IMMERSIVE TRIBUTE TO THE FIRST FEMALE SUFI MYSTIC AND POET.
Born in eighth century Iraq, Rabia Al Basri set forth the doctrines of Divine Love and non-duality that lie at the heart of today’s Sufi mysticism. Though recognized as a saint, her role continues to be diminished in value because she was a woman.
Persian electroacoustic duo Niyaz team up with renowned interactive design artist Jerome Delapierre to honor her. They combine live music and sacred dance performance with advanced technologies and responsive projection and body-mapping techniques for a seamless synthesis of sound, space, image and light. The real and the virtual mergeâ€”pulling the audience inside the art to share in a unique narrative and multi-sensory spiritual experience.
