Sufi Journey

blogSacred/Secular: A Sufi Journey explores Sufism as a spiritual and cultural lens into Islam through the work of performers from four Muslim-majority nations outside the Arab world: Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan and Senegal.  Our objective is to raise awareness of the plurality of the Muslim identity and the link between local culture and religion. We hope these performances will allow us to be mindful of the challenges we face in our world and how the same questions of political, religious, gender dynamics and ethnicity exist everywhere.
