SARAY Iluminado – Relaxed Performance

SARAY Iluminado

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre


SARAY Iluminado perform as part of the Relaxed Performance series.

SARAY Iluminado specialises in Sevdah, the traditional music from Bosnia, Herzegovina and Sephardic Jewish Romances. Straddling borders of music and theatre, the group shares intimate rituals of belonging. The distinctive style of performance aesthetic blurs the boundaries between performers and audiences, crafting a nostalgic melting pot of songs, stories, dreams and memories.

The Centre’s series of Relaxed Performances are specifically suited for audiences with sensory sensitivities, using altered lighting, more in-depth musical explanations and accompanying access resources.

The Relaxed Performance series is supported by the Learning and Access Consortium
