Infatuation. Jealousy. Lust. Every matter of the heart has been written about in poetry, and in Persian cultures, there's a 1000-year-old practice of courting your lover through rhythmic language. Inspired by curtain shows, intimate storytelling and epics ballads from the streets of Kabul, Tehran and Quetta, Dorr-e Dari invites audiences to turn off their dating apps and tune into the language of love with hosts Bibi Goul Mossavi, Jawad Yaqoubi and Mahdi Mohammadi. The Sydney Festival show has been created by progressive western Sydney theatre company PYT Fairfield.
