A girl with almond eyes whispers sweet songs to her beloved under the enchanted pomegranate tree. In a garden of jasmine blossoms, a young man, his cheeks like honey-dew, fills his true love's glass with enchantment. In a dark place, a flower has wilted, spoiled by poisonous hands.
The songs and stories of the Middle East and Mediterranean are infused with sensations, fragrances, tastes and colours.
Weaving together traditional and original songs, poems and stories, German/Egyptian singer Merit Ariane is joined by Iranian qanun player Nilufar Habibian, British multi-instrumentalist Jon Banks and storyteller Rosie Hilal.
Admission £10, family concessions, all profits to charity.
