There was a huge excitement on Sunday 17th April 2011, in the auditorium of the University of Düsseldorf. As the beginning of the show approached, the students met the final preparations and the guests were eagerly waiting to enter the hall.
About 3 pm the program began with the Persian national anthem. The performance of the “Tehrani-dance” by the children especially drew the attention of the audience. Then a singing of spring followed, which depicted the image of spring with all its beauties, the awakening of nature. The program continues with “The apricot kernel” play performed by students of year one. The play illustrated a beautiful story of patience, growth and prosperity.
This exquisite event continued with the entrance of students in their folk dance costumes from Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan. The energy and excitement of the dance brought such joy to the audience that the hall seemed to be dancing along. The instrumental music group enraptured the audience immensely with their performance. The most captivating part of the festival was the harmonious performance of traditional Persian dance. Towards the end of the event, students were awarded with gifts and certificates followed by a peaceful Zekr (Sufi chanting) performance.
The very last performance of the night was the joyful and vibrant Bandari dance. This fun and exciting night was completed with a buffet of Persian delicacies and refreshments leaving the guests and participants with great memories. Guests, young and old enjoyed their time with a festival full of fun and excitement and so this evening came to an end at 10 pm.
