Your Guide To What's On – Things To Do In Sydney, Australia

Dorr-e Dari: A Poetic Crash Course in the Language of Love

A festival-hit encompassing the streets of Kabul, Tehran and Quetta, from Western Sydney’s PYT Fairfield.

Your Afghan-Australian hosts Hasiba, Jawad and Mahdi will guide you on the path to love – from getting caught writing love letters to the art of flirting, romance and forming relationships.

Inspired by the tradition of private recitals and ‘curtain shows’ performed all through the Persian-speaking world. Dorr-e Dari is a rich and tender theatre work that combines thousand-year traditions, with personal stories spanning continents, singing, joyous dancing and sumptuous video imagery where guests appear on video calls from Afghanistan, Iran and Canada.

Dorr-e Dari invites audiences to experience the culturally diverse and rich cultures on their doorstep.  Offering deep consideration on how the universal themes of love and relationships are celebrated and experienced across cultures over time and today.

Enter a world where any problem can be solved with a couplet and there’s a verse for every condition of the heart.
