Ensafi to Sing About Norouz

Actor and director Javad Ensafi is to bring on stage five years of research about Norouz (Iranian New Year) traditions and festivities in the form of a play based on the vernal equinox.
Ensafi’s play titled ‘Norouz Khani’ (Norouz singing), a special folk music performance, is set to start on March 17, four days prior to the beginning of the New Year, and will be staged at Shahrzad Theater House in Tehran until April 20, Tiwall.com reported.  
The practice of Norouz Khani is more prevalent in the northern provinces of Mazandaran and Gilan.
