She is accompanied by Andrew Harvey as the voice of Rumi summoning her deeper into the flames of death and rebirth.

Banafsheh Sayyad, an Iranian-born dance artist and transformational teacher, communicates the universal message of Sufi mysticism in a passionate yet meditative way. She is one of the few bearers of authentic Persian dance in the world, an innovator of Sufi dance previously only performed by men and a pioneer in contemporary Persian dance. Internationally known for her innovative movement vocabulary and high artistic and educational standards, she draws from her extensive background in Sufism, Persian dance and ritual, Tai Chi and Flamenco to present a new form, rooted in tradition yet universal, “fusing ancient forms with a postmodern punch” (Los Angeles Times). Banafsheh comes from a long lineage of pioneering performing artists. Her father, the legendary Iranian filmmaker, theater director and actor, Parviz Sayyad, hailed as the Charlie Chaplin of Iran, is the most famous Iranian of his time. Banafsheh is a recipient of the prestigious James Irvine Foundation grant in Dance. She holds an MFA in Dance from UCLA where she taught Persian dance.
