Enjoy a special opportunity to engage with a theatre project in process!
Noor, a contemporary examination of Rumi and his muse, Shams, is a new work by young playwright Erum Khan about the navigation of identities here and now. It’s the story of the 17-year-old titular character’s journey through the end of adolescence, Islamic faith, and fraught relationships with friends and family. The production combines live music by renowned sitarist Anwar Khurshid and Toronto-based electronic duo LAL.
Observe the play in development and rehearsals taking place inside the Mongolian yurt in the Museum’s courtyard.
