US Premiere "Rumi x 7 = Tales from the Masnavi" Theatre
International artist, Hafiz Karmali will direct this original play in his signature lyrical style fusing western circus arts and commedia dell arte with Middle Eastern dance and poetry. Hafiz Karmali is joining Golden Thread as resident director where over the next three years he will develop original performances inspired by Islamic history and literature. Titled Islam 101, the series kicks off with this US premiere of Rumi x 7 = Tales from the Masnavi.

Fresh from his highly praised direction of Night Over Erzinga by Adriana Sevahn Nichols, Karmali turns his attention to staging Rumi's poetry as fun-filled vignettes that are entertaining and inspiring.

The fables are selected from Rumi's Masnavi and include familiar tales such as The Elephant in the Dark and The Grammarian and the Boatman, as well as lesser known gems.

Just in time for the holidays, this enchanting performance with live music will premiere at the Islamic Cultural Center in preparation for touring in 2012.
