About this show

Nominated for the prestigious Fringe First Award (best new work) Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2010, Silken Veils is an elegant hybridization of Rumi poetry, marionettes, shadow work, live performance, animation and contemporary Iranian history. Creator Leila Ghaznavi blends these media to evoke the story of Darya, a young woman who questions the value of love, while reliving her childhood and the turbulence and passion of her family during the Iranian Revolution of 1979 and the Iran/Iraq war. // Talkback with the Artists, Fri March 11 @ 10pm
