All performances are free and start at noon. To kick off the 7th season of the Rotunda Dance Series, Nava Dance Collective will present Transcendence – Charkh e Falak (Turning of The Cosmos), a dance installation in honor of Nowruz (New Day), a celebration of the Spring equinox observed by peoples across the Middle East and Central Asia.
 
This piece honors the ancient Zoroastrian sun deity, Mithra, and will feature a traditional Iranian Haft-Seen (a ritual altar built in homes during the time of Nowruz), along with an enactment of the rituals performed on Nowruz by Anahita, the ancient Persian goddess of water.
