on a golden dome

An Uzbek wisdom tale retold under the scorching sun of Tajikistan was the beginning of a collaboration between performance storyteller Torgrim Mellum Stene and the Tajik actor Abdumumin Sharifi. Sons of the Merchant is a tale for two languages, two cultures, two generations. A storytelling concert for two instruments – Norwegian and Persian – of loss, death, sorrow and the joy you can find on the other side.
