Celebrate Eid With Asia Society
Calligraphy, card making, recipes, and a very special performance
Eid Mubarak! Celebrated by Muslims around the world, Eid marks the end of Ramadan and a month of fasting, charity, and spirituality. Asia Society teamed up with The Culture Tree to celebrate Eid — virtually! Working together, we've prepared a full slate of activities to celebrate Eid for the whole family.
Today at 11 a.m. New York time, tune in for the premiere of Reinterpretation of Eidgah, a beloved classic Eid story from India. This version was written by 10 year-old budding author Nikhil Sethi and performed by Preeti Vasudevan, the artistic director of Thresh Dance.
Her performance includes fundamentals of Indian dance-theater such as abhinaya, or "expression" and “mudras” (hand gestures) that help bring the story to life.
In addition to the performance, our virtual Eid Family Day includes story time with Hena Khan, calligraphy demonstration and coloring sheets by Taha al-Hiti, 3-D Eid card making with Tamania (Urdu Mom), and celebratory recipes from chef Maneet Chauhan and The Culture Tree founder Anu Sehgal.
Hena Khan reads from Night of the Moon and More to the Story.
