Newroz at GTG

The Kurdish, Afghan and Iranian communities invite you to celebrate Newroz, a celebration of renewal, in the foyer of the Grand Théâtre. Amongst culinary specialities and a traditional concert, you can attend a Sufi dance workshop or a rhythmic workshop in 7/8, or even just let yourself be explained what Newroz is.

Babylon Orchestra at l’Alhambra

After an entire afternoon of inter-community celebrations in the foyers of the Grand Théâtre, we move to the Alhambra to welcome Babylon Orchestra. This orchestra, founded in 2016 around the encounter between East and West, puts music at the centre of cultural dialogue and integration. For Newroz, the day of renewal celebrated by Kurds, Afghans and Iranians, the orchestra invites the Iranian-born singer Michal Elia Kamal to join them.

The HEM, La Comédie, the Alhambra and the Victoria Hall are also joining the adventure, from mid-March to the end of June, 2023.
