Experience the flavors, music, and culture of Afghanistan as you follow a group of Afghan women from their lives during Taliban rule to a new beginning in Pittsburgh. This immersive cultural experience includes live Afghan and classical music and stories illuminating Afghan traditions of Ramadan, birth, and death, as told by Pittsburgh’s female Afghan immigrants.

Through this remount of RealTime Arts’ popular theatrical experience Khuraki—meaning “eat” or “meal” in the Afghan language Dari– you’ll learn what Afghan refugees wish Americans knew about their country and culture. You'll discover how the creation of this unique theater work (a 2019 nominee for the Mayor’s Award for Public Art) led to the forming of a cooperatively-owned catering business, Zafaron, begun by the women whose stories you’ll hear. And you’ll enjoy a delicious, fresh-cooked Afghan tasting meal prepared by the women themselves.
