"Celebration" is a multi-media project that brings peoples and cultures together through the message of Nowruz. The ancient culture of Iran stands between East and West. Today Iranians stand at the crossroads between modernity and tradition; at times identifying with their past, while on occasion adopting new ways. The dynamics of merging these two tendencies set the groundwork for the story of "Celebration" where music, dance and film portray this process of coexistence and conflict.

4:30 to 7 p.m.
Live Musical Performance by KamyR followed by D.J. KABO (BP Grand Entrance)
Open to all, no tickets required.
