A SUFI ART FESTIVAL

Brought by the Qadiri-Boutchichi Order , this festival consists of a calligraphy workshop, poetry, spiritual songs and theatre, using art as a means of spiritual and personal upliftment.

Poetry will be delivered by Avaes Mohammad and Zahidah Dodwell. Contemporary calligraphy will be exhibited, with workshops lead by Muhammad al-Amine Eatwell.  Members of the Qadiri-Boutchichi order will perform Spiritual songs as well as the play, The Madjoub’s Box, along with special guests.  A talk introducing the Qadiri-Boutchichi Sufi order will also feature as part of the events.

The play, ‘The Majdoub’s Box‘ tells the tale of a Sufi’s death, prompting locals to gather at his grave and lay claim to his only possession – A Box. As they imagine what might be inside, often to comic effect, they discover a deeper secret waiting for them…
