Rumiyana is a multimedia musical puppet theatre performance based on Mevlana Rumi’s work, Masnavi, whose influence transcends national borders and unites people of all races, nationality, gender across the globe, owing to the universality of his thoughts.
Enacted by two performers, the master and the student, the performance is synergised with dancers, puppeteers and visual theatre with specially composed music.
The dialogue of the story which is narrated on the threshold of a door unfolds a journey within, to unravel the path outside. Four stories emerge out of a single narrative to tell a tale of seeking and receiving, from being the light to spreading light to shining bright—the unity of vision.
The presentation, which includes animations and projections, explores the concept of pluralism and the unity of all existence as one. It uses metaphors of soul, body and shadow to realise the idea of the true self. It promotes unity, love and peace by the celebration of diversity, for there are, as many ways as there are seekers.
