Come to the Dorothy Menker Theatre at Moraine Valley Community College to see the multimedia performing group Niyaz’s “The Fourth Light Project” October 21, and stay at the nearby and affordable Motel 6 Chicago Hotel in Tinley Park!
Notable electroacoustic group Niyaz presents a multimedia show unlike any other. This ground-breaking and immersive experience combines live musical and sacred dance performance with interactive technologies and advanced projection/body-mapping techniques that respond to sound and movement in real time.
At the center of “The Fourth Light Project” is the work of Rabia Al Basri, the first female Sufi mystic and poet. Born in the 8th century in what is now Iraq, she served as the main source of inspiration for the production. The group’s musical and personal heritage lies in the mysticism and allure of the East, but Niyaz was formed in California and one of their aims has long been to build a bridge between East and West – a sanctuary from a modern world of polarized ideologies.
“Niyaz is an alluring combination of medieval Persian exoticism and beats that are the state of the art.” Billboard
The Dorothy Menker Theatre is located at 9000 West College Parkway in Palos Hills. For tickets to see Niyaz’s “The Fourth Light Project”, go online to http://sa1.seatadvisor.com/sabo/servlets/EventSearch?presenter=MVCC&event=NIYAZ17&testingCookie=true an follow the prompts.
