|Gunai to perform Iranian folk dances in Tehran||
TEHRAN -- Gunai, an Iranian ensemble of over 30 female dancers, will perform a variety of Iranian folk dances at Tehran’s Vahdat Hall on Thursday and Friday.
Only women are allowed to attend the performances, which will begin at 3 p.m., publicist Manijeh Babaii said in a press release issued on Saturday.
The shows will be mixed theatrical performances, during which a woman becomes familiar with the traditions of people while she goes from town to town across Iran to find a missing person.
In part of the program, the group will perform lezginka, a dance done by many of the Caucasian people that is also practiced in northwestern Iran.
Kurdish dance will also be featured in the performances, which will be directed by Mandana Talebi. She is also the choreographer of the performances.
In addition, a Gilaki dance, which is common among the Iranian people of Gilan Province, will be performed.
The show will come to an end with a performance by Bita Afshar-Moqaddam of sama, the Sufi ecstatic dance.
