Prisms of Love Sufi Tales Through Storytelling Teaser

Here is our teaser for our unique commission in partnership with the British Library entitled Prisms of Love: Sufi Tales Through Storytelling by Dr Vayu Naidu on Friday 9 October 2015, 7pm at the British Library Conference Centre.


This performance brings the sixteenth century Indian Sufi romance to life on stage drawing on scholarly insights from Professor Francesca Orsini, and is created, directed and performed by Dr Vayu Naidu.


Melinda Maxwell of Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and Sarvar Sabri offer new compositions, which are accompanied by Kathak dance from Sonia Sabri. Beautiful paintings from the seventeenth and nineteenth century manuscripts of Gorakhpur and Mirzapur held in the British Library’s collections are also displayed.
