Don't miss the opportunity to see whirling dervishes perform the Mevlevi Sema Ceremony at Istanbul's Hodjapasha cultural dance theatre. The ceremony features a complex musical repertoire called 'ayin' and the whirling dance performed by the dervishes represents the mythical journey of man's spiritual ascent through mind and love to perfection. It is a tradition more than 800 years old, and in 2005 it was proclaimed as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
The ceremony starts after a 15 minute classical instrumental performance by a traditional Turkish orchestra and lasts for around 45 minutes. It is accompanied by 360 degree video special effects projected on the walls of the beautiful historic building and some amazing lighting, adding to the atmosphere of this captivating ceremony. The total duration is one hour, and seats are numbered, so be sure to book early.
