Zaar spirits are contagious, they sweep into people through their mouths and noses and wind their way through their bodies. They like to sit on the tops of mountains, they like to make the sea swirl. Some love it when we show them our teeth.

In her new piece, Ulduz Ahmadzadeh continues her long-term research on the movement material of West Asian cultural heritage and lets the spirits carry her on the wind from the Persian Gulf to the African continent. "ZĀĀR" is an examination of the cosmology of transcontinental Zaar rituals and a search for traces of kinship in dance. Together with the dancers of PARASOL, Ulduz Ahmadzadeh embarks on a turbulent journey towards transformation, states of trance and obsession, and offerings in her choreography.
