An exquisite new theatre work inspired by the thousand-year practice of Persian love poetry.

Switch off your dating apps, forget the nightclubs and tune in to a thousand-year practice of courtly Persian love poetry in Dorr-e Dari: A Poetic Crash Course in the Language of Love

Through intimate storytelling and epic ballads from the streets of Kabul, Tehran and Quetta, via Western Sydney, your hosts Bibi, Jawad and Mahdi will guide you on the path to love.  

Inspired by the tradition of private recitals and ‘curtain shows’ performed throughout the Persian-speaking world, this new theatre work will show you there’s a verse for every condition of the heart. 

Dorr-e Dari: A Poetic Crash Course in the Language of Love is a creation by PYT Fairfield, a brave and transformative theatre company, whose vision asserts and celebrates Australia as a culturally diverse nation. 

Following the success of Tribunal (Sydney Festival 2018), PYT Fairfield return to challenge the conversations of traditional theatre with this rich and tender new work.
