Hafiz Karmali to direct "The Conference of the Birds" at Brandeis University

Excerpt: “We are especially excited about that international director Hafiz Karmali is coming to direct ‘The Conference of Birds’ with our undergraduate students,” Krstansky said. According to his website, Karmali “favors a highly stylized form of dance-theatre that is often inspired by art history and devotional in nature.” His most recent production, “Rumi x 7 = Tales from the Masnavi” is performed “circus-style” featuring acrobats and clowns. It is a series of vignettes including familiar stories like “The Elephant in Darkness” and “The Grammarian and Boatman.”
