Ballet Afsaneh

Ballet Afsaneh, the professional performance ensemble of the Afsaneh Art Culture Society, is based in the San Francisco Bay Area of California in the USA. This dynamic group presents performances and activities featuring dance, poetry, and music of the Silk Road —the historic trade route stretching 7,000 miles across Eurasia from the China Sea in the east to the Mediterranean in the west. The Ballet Afsaneh repertoire displays a wide range, from the glittering lyricism of fairytale to incisive, thought provoking, contemporary work.
"Afsaneh" is a wonderful word, common to the major language groups of the Silk Road, meaning "legend" or "mythic story" and indeed Ballet Afsaneh has in many ways become a legend in its own time. The group's traditional repertory includes the folkloric and classical dances of Iran, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, China and India. In addition, their contemporary work melds ancient art forms with modern dance and theater in a unique, and richly imagistic approach. Ballet Afsaneh produces an annual home season in the San Francisco Bay Area of California and presents programs at major performing arts venues, festivals, university theaters, schools, community centers, and special events. The company tours internationally and in the United States.
