Rebirth project is a combined art performance that illustrates the lives of modern Middle Eastern women, their aspirations, problems, restrictions and freedoms, through music, contemporary ballet and visual arts based on Persian Literature with English translation and narration.

Rebirth is based on poems of the famous Iranian poet Forough Farrokhzad. Forough’s poems have a deep resonance for many Iranian women, reflecting as they do on powerful emotions, and common struggles.

Forough’s poems form the thread between all the performance elements of this project. Parts of her poems are the focus of each song. Visual arts and dance shall be used to emphasise the meaning of these poems. A narrator will also narrate the songs in English.

To bring this innovative project together, a team of Iranian and Australian professionals worked together and used their expertise to create the Rebirth Combined Art Performance.

Rebirth project was initially created by the Australian-Iranian classical Soprano Shirin Majd, who worked with the highly regarded composers Vahid Zardey, Mahyar Alizadeh and Basir Faghih Nasiri to compose the brand new songs. Shirin Majd with Sweet Sound Ensemble and guest musicians will perform these pieces live in con-cert with English narration from Jordin Steele. World famous dancer “Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam” will also join the Rebirth tour around the Australia from Paris.

Rebirth is an embodiment of modern day cultural diversity and combines contemporary music, Persian literature, classical singing, dance and visual art like never be-fore to bridge the gap between the east and west.
