A special feature of ANAR DANA Projects is our Cultural Evening Series. On the Friday or Saturday evening of our rehearsal weekend we have a potluck at the studio or a private home and look at films, photos, costumes, listen to music, discuss history, ethnography and politics of one of the regions from our project. It has been amazing what interesting people are coming to these cozy community evenings. We are always excited to welcome a wider audience of people interested in learning about traditional culture. Please join us!!!
These evenings are open to everyone!
Suggested donation is $15 for the general public and goes towards the studio and new costumes for the ensemble. If you can, bring something for the potluck that fits the evening's theme.
