Lester Horton Award winning choreographer Anna Djanbazian’s Search for Enlightenment
October 25, 2005

Dear Dance Enthusiast and Supporter of The Arts,

The Djanbazian Dance Foundation’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce the 2006 premier of Lester Horton Award winning choreographer Anna Djanbazian’s Search for Enlightenment (a working title), on January 7th, 2006 at 8:00 P.M. and January 8th at 7:00 P. M. at UCLA’s Freud Playhouse.

The meeting of the philosophers, mystics and poets, Rumi and Shams in the 13th century, has inspired Djanbazian to create the two-act contemporary dance event that will include: contemporary choreography danced by the Djanbazian Dance Company and guest dancers, live music with vocalist Shahla Sarookhani, video projections, spoken word, and singing.

An evening of this tremendous proportion not only involves research, artistic skill and innovative choreography but monetary support to make it come to life on stage with a cast of skilled dancers, musicians, a fine technical staff, exquisite costumes and brilliant lighting to enhance the work presented. Since public funding for the arts is at the lowest it has ever been, your generous contribution to Djanbazian Dance Foundation (DDF) will help support this important cultural event and the future of DDF.

The Djanbazian Dance Foundation as a non-profit cultural organization has a mission to promote the development of the art of dance by producing and organizing unique, diverse, educational and cultural programs. The goals of DDF is to breakdown the cultural barriers among the youth, build a positive experience and provide special events that will bring a greater appreciation among various cultural patrons. Search for Enlightenment (a working title), as a premier event presented at UCLA’s Freud Playhouse on January 7th and 8th of 2006, will reach beyond the goals of DDF by offering a high caliber evening of contemporary dance created by master choreographer, Anna Djanbazian
