Rumi Festival. Music, Word, Art and Dance

This summer the Beshara School at Chisholme is looking forward to hosting the Rumi Festival, 2–4 August, which looks to be one of the biggest public events of its history. The Festival is a celebration of the incomparable life, work and legacy of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi, whose message of universal love, service and following has had a transformative effect on countless lives throughout the world.

The Festival Programme contains a rich mix of talks, participatory events, poetry, art and dance, kicking off with a solo concert from Kudsi Erguner, master of the Turkish Ney, on the Friday evening. The programme goes on to encompass talks and discussions about Rumi and his influence today with Andrew Harvey, Alan Williams, Roderick Grierson, Emily Young and others; a Whirling Dervish Sema from Istanbul; installation art from Ismail Acar; theatre, dance and art inspired by Rumi’s work and much more.

The programme is evolving daily; please check the website www.rumifestival.org regularly or sign up to the twitter feed (https://twitter.com/@rumifest) for news as it comes in.

This festival is open to all – whether familiar with Rumi’s immense presence or completely new to his generosity.

Rumi’s compass is vast, horizonless. Who can see where his skirt ends? In this spirit we would like to encourage all who receive this email to share it as widely as possible among friends, networks and even with that apparent stranger on the train.
