PERSIA, Central ASIA & PAKISTAN
Central Asia - Pakistan
The ancient glory of the Achaemenids and the current truth of poverty and impoverishment in which large masses of the population still live. ISPACHAN is the mirror of the cultural culture of PERSIA . Here is the cultivated, raffinate, rich in spirit and deep humour PERSIA. The villages are remote and scattered in the steppes and small oases at the foot of the mountains from afar seem like mythical fortresses, worn by the wind and the sun.They are distinguished and show all their misery. People work like captives in the underground tunnels and they feed the village with water through them.
The "tazige" (literally "mourning") is a kind of mass political theater , since real circumstances and events are recalled, in which the main masses are the protagonists .
As in the traditional "tazige" (depicted on the streets and courtyards), the contemporary version of Shiraz is centered on the anniversary of the martyrdom of the descendants of Muhammad, which took place in KERBELLA (today IRAQ) in 680.
The people authorizes Bharat's representative to avenge Hossein, the third descendant of the Prophet, who was slaughtered with his family and his followers by Yazid's unarmed hordes. The scene is suddenly overwhelmed by axes, rakes, knives, and then there are heads, feet and hands falling and the blood runs through the viewers. The conclusion that any illiterate can draw upon, following the performance of the theater of this street, is that the people, as it explains the "tazige" isolated and oppressed by a small "elite," can at all times regain unity in faith, to empower an avenger and to be vindicated.
