Nowruz, the Persian New Year, is the most celebrated day in Iran, and it is also the first day of spring. Then there is Sizdah Bedar, which means the thirteenth day of the year. On this designated day, people go out for a picnic in nature. We will organise this picnic in the MACBA Atrium, run by Sabores de la vida, a Barcelona store specialising in international and especially Persian products. We will be accompanied on voice and guitar by Soheil Keshavarz, which means star of agriculture, and who will sing us modern music and songs from this revolution.
A picnic that will take place on the Baharestan carpet, from which Tere Zelzeleh will reveal some secrets to us. Bahrestan carpet is a poem that surrounds the garden, as if it were a stream, and flows into a central pond. Chahar bagh, which means four gardens, are the gardens that Tere will explain to us: about mythology, the Sassanian era, modern politics and Iranian feminism. Among other things, she will also tell us how she found the Spring carpet.
