The Boghossian Foundation promotes the dialogue between Eastern and Western cultures. The emphasis is laid on what these multifaceted cultures have in common and how their differences can mutually enrich them. Through exhibitions, concerts, literary meetings, film screenings, performances and workshops for children, the rich program of the Villa Empain offers numerous opportunities for dialogue between cultures.
For an evening around the famous Persian tale The Speech of the Birds, the Foundation welcomes the Trio Saouta (saxophone, oud, tablas) accompanied by the dancer and choreographer Simon Mayer. Mixing music and dance in a mesmerizing performance, they take you on a journey in the footsteps of 30 pilgrim birds in search of the mythical Simurgh to recognize him as their king.
