SPRINGboard: Muriel Razavi
Iranian-American violist Muriel Razavi earned her doctorate in Re-Orientalism in music and infuses her preoccupation with political-social issues into her SPRINGboard concert. For the concert, she has developed a solo performance in five musical scenes. The music is by Iranian composers Aida Shirazi, Bahar Royaee, Niloufar Nourbakhsh and Farzia Fallah and tells the story of the life of a woman who defies political and social restrictions and gives hope and courage to other women through her newly won freedom. The performance will be followed by a conversation with Muriel Razavi and Iranian composer Aida Shirazi.
The SPRINGboard series presents exceptional young artistic personalities who guide the audience through their specially conceived programs and share the issues that move them and their generation in concert.
The concert is also part of the International Weeks Against Racism by Interkulturelles Zentrum Heidelberg.
