The City of Dublin will begin producing performing arts events at the Dublin High School theater in the new year. The first City-produced performance is “Journey of the Silk Road,” on Thursday, January 12, 2017, 7 p.m., at Dublin High School Center for Performing Arts and Education. Tickets are $15 and are available now online at Dublin.ca.gov/arts and at the door the night of the performance.
Travel through the fabled lands along the ancient East-West trade route. Internationally acclaimed performer and dance ethnologist Farima Berenji and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Gold share the vibrant cultures of Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Tajikstan, Persia and Turkey. They are joined by members of the Simorgh Dance Collective and Caravan El Noor. The performance will feature folkloric, classical and sacred music and dance.
In 2016, the City of Dublin and Dublin Unified School District signed a Memorandum of Understanding that grants the City use of the facility for a certain number of dates per year.
“We heard from the community this summer during the Cultural Arts Needs Assessment that the opportunity to see professionally produced performances and have more multicultural programming is important to them, so we are very excited to be able to bring this performance to Dublin, and look forward to announcing other shows soon,” said Cultural Arts and Heritage Manager Tegan McLane.
