Rumi's Mystical Journey

Shoenberg Hall

445 Charles E Young Dr E, Los Angeles, CA, 90095

8:00pm

Rumi’s Mystical Journey is a musical performance at UCLA’s Schoenberg Hall to celebrate Rumi’s search for the union with the Beloved. Join us to in experiencing Rumi’s epic journey through musical expression of his mystic and Sufi poetry.

This performance will feature Iranian classical music and dance. It will also showcase music from the North Indian and Turkish classical traditions. It is the hope of the organizer and participating performers that this event will broaden the reach of Rumi’s humble message of divine love by bringing more audiences to his passion and faith through music. To introduce those who possess a cursory understanding of Rumi to a more in depth exploration of his life, longing, and search for meaning. To bring to life the man who lived so long ago.

This event is organized by Farzad Amoozegar, a dual doctorate student at the UCLA’s department of Anthropology and Ethnomusicology departments. Farzad’s anthropology project encompasses ethics and social suffering; trauma and children; violence and subjectivity; and phenomenology of pain in the West Bank. His ethnomusicology doctorate addresses hermeneutics and critical theory; phenomenology of music; language of authority and ownership; ethics and aesthetics in performance in Iran traditional music.

8:30pm

Overtone Industries, a celebrated force in the evolution of contemporary music theatre and experimental opera, will share the next phase of its epic new multidisciplinary production, ICELAND, in concert form, at the Ford Theatres’ stunning, newly renovated amphitheatre in Los Angeles on Friday, October 7, 2016 at 8:30pm. Written and composed by O-Lan Jones, in collaboration with critically acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Emmett Tinley, ICELAND is a modern love story, set in a mythical and timeless world, where ancient creatures challenge the hero and heroine on an archetypal journey. The work tells an intimate story, beginning in an Icelandic airport and journeying off the map of the known world, into the realm of “The Hiddenfolk” and the vast mythic inner landscapes of Iceland. The ICELAND Concert at the Ford, presented for the first time with full orchestration and complete score, will be directed and choreographed by local legend Ken Roht, with musical direction by David O, as well as additional creative scenic design elements and impressionistic costumes. Additional information can be found at fordtheatres.org.

The ICELAND Concert will feature a 10-piece chamber orchestra, 12-voice choir, acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Tinley as “Mundi” (the male lead), award-winning Los Angeles actress-singer Cesili Williams as “Vala” (the female lead), four operatic soloists as The Mythic Beasts, and staging by the incomparable Ken Roht, well-known for his unexpected and highly imaginative musical extravaganzas. The work is presented by Overtone Industries, a company that creates new myths in the form of music, theatre, and opera. Overtone’s work has been called “audaciously experimental entertainment” by the Los Angeles Times.

The ICELAND Concert will run for just under two hours, including one intermission. VIP tickets are $100 and include premium seating, pre-show reception, and an artist meet and greet. Tickets start at $30. Tickets are available online or by calling 323-461-3673 (for non-visual media 323-GO-1-FORD). The Ford is located at 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. East, Hollywood, CA 90068.

Through the Run4Care 5k/10k, runners or event participants can raise money for women they know or do not know who are facing one of these 4 challenging health issues. They can also donate money to a treatment facility or non-profit organization that provides free health care services.
