Note! No cost or tickets, the performance takes place at Sergels torg.

Baba Karam - through Jamileh and Khordadian the summer sneak peak is an intimate invitation to the audience to dance into the community! With West Asian club music and Persian storytelling tradition, a colourful performance with the power to change is created.

Inspired by Iranian family celebrations and with a touch of Bollywood, music and dance are interwoven with personal anecdotes. With tender care, dance memories and stories of forbidden desires and identities are explored.
