Tajikistan July – August 2011

During the summer of 2011 six members of our performing arts ensemble were able to travel once again to Tajikistan. The group included dance artists Kristen Sague, Hannah Romanowsky, Mariam Gaibova, Emelie Coleman, musician/composer Neema Hekmat, and Sharlyn Sawyer (ostad Sharlyn) director/artist AACS-BA. The purpose of our journey would be to renew friendships with our Tajik counterparts through TDI now a fully independent local Tajik arts organization based in Dushanbe. During our stay we would have the opportunity to study dance, collaborate with local artists and perform in various settings, and inspire future joint projects.What follows are first hand accounts of the travels and adventures of 2011, as experienced by Afsaneh Art & Culture Society – Ballet Afsaneh members, and honored dance artists/scholars Hannah Romanowsky and Kristen Sague.
