Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam
As I mentioned before, Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam, an accomplished dancer with the Comedie Francaise, who manages his own dance company Nakissa in Paris, will be traveling to North America. Those of you who live in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Toronto, might wish to mark your calendars. I hear he is fabulous on stage, and judging from the few video clips I have seen of his dances, I would have to concur. In addition to the Iranian dance moves he seems to be able to choreograph, I detect flamenco moves in his dance, which is very interesting. Take a look at these short video clips: one, two, three, and four (this one I had shared with you before—it’s on Youtube, so some people might not be able to see it.). Here’s a list of his scheduled performances: Los Angeles: Omar Khayam, August 25, 2007, 8:00 p.m., Wilshire Ebel Theatre, 4401 West 8th Street, Los Angeles, CA 9005, (818) 908-0808.
