In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the Grammy Award-winning Silkroad Ensemble will perform the world premiere of a bold new project, Heroes Take Their Stands. This evening-length multimedia program tells the stories of five heroic figures from diverse cultures – from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to Elektra of Greek mythology, to Arjuna of Hindu epic poetry – capturing the drama of the moral borderland between conflicting values, and asking, “What does it mean to take a stand in a moment of moral uncertainty? What does an everyday hero look like? And how can an ordinary person make a difference?” Arts & Lectures is thrilled to be the lead commissioner on this new project with the renowned Silkroad Ensemble and its collaborating partners, including Bharatanatyam dancer Aparna Ramaswamy (working with Colin Jacobsen) and puppeteer/filmmaker Hamid Rahmanian (working with Kayhan Kalhor).
