Dancer in the Wind's Breath


Sanaa never speaks. Words and language never come out of her mouth. Yet when she dances, she can convey nuances of meaning and entire complex narratives with nothing but the gyrations of her form.

She is always seen swathed in a multi-colored yashmak typical of some women of the South, with only her soulful eyes peering out through the slits in the cloth.

She is Shah Zaman’s slave. Neither of them have ever talked about the circumstances that led to that particular pairing.


Only Shah Zaman seems to know anything about Sanaa’s past, but he won’t talk about it. However, when Zhao Shen offered both Shah Zaman and Sanaa a place in his troupe, The Wind’s Breath, Sanaa’s eyes showed a brief instant of joy at the news.
