The greatest love story ever told
Often described as the Romeo and Juliet of the East, Layla Majnun is a powerful and enduring tale of love and separation loved by cultures across the world. Now re-imagined into a solo show featuring Farsi scholar and storyteller, Ustaadh Feraidoon Mojadedi, the show has been created by a team of diverse artists from Western Australia and directed by James Berlyn.
Showcasing poems by Rumi and other poets, this hour-long performance integrates traditional Persian storytelling with contemporary visual projections and original music, bringing this tale to the 21st Century.
Produced and presented by Performing Lines WA, the show premiered in Perth, Western Australia, 2019 and is now seeking future presentations for 2020 and beyond.
