Mawlana a Monodrama

Lecture Performée Nawar Bulbul / Marcos Aila Forero from Le Grand Café on Vimeo.

By Fares al Zahaby

Directed/Performed by Nawar Bulbul

at Lale Kod in Istanbul September 8/9

Mawlana, written by Fares al Zahaby and performed live by Nawar Bulbul, tells the story of a young man who grew up underneath a conservative Sunni father. Disenchanted with the dogmatism in his life, the young man seeks spiritual renewal through Sufism only to discover that it too refuses to see validity in any religious belief outside itself. This play is about one man’s struggle to break from tradition in an increasingly sectarian world.
