Set in a small fishing village on the shores of Persian Gulf, Asheq: Ritual Music to Cure a Lover, is a story of forbidden love, a family divided by long-held secrets, and a community trying to find balance between traditional ways and the modern world. When a young man won't listen to his elders, they prepare a Zar exorcism ceremony, intended to rid him of the “sickness” of his love for an outcast young woman, but the ceremony ultimately reveals a father’s long-buried secrets.

An engrossing, multimedia theatre production by Shahin Sayadi with original music by Habib Meftah Boushehri and Mohsen Sharifian.
