The Whirling Dervishes of Istanbul

November 19th, 2007

What this is 
I remember hearing about the Whirling Dervishes when I stared my healing journey and now here's the chance to see them live. It's going to be a real treat.  The show it at 8:00 PM with Coleman Barks at the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts – Zellerbach Theatre.

Description 
Since I haven't been to see this show yet I'll let the presenters speak {from the website of the Philadelphia Society for Art, Literature & Music}:
"Experience the divine in an ecstatic performance by the Whirling Dervishes of Istanbul, Turkey, coming to Philadelphia with special guest host Coleman Barks, on Friday, December 14th, and Saturday, December 15th at the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts – Zellerbach Theatre at 8:00 pm each evening.
