× Qalb - A Journey of the Ego
A 1s1 Theatre production, co-presented by Why Not Theatre

Qalb, a word borrowed from Arabic, means heart in Rumi’s native Persian language. Diving into his world of thoughts and poetry, 1s1 Theatre’s latest production Qalb - A Journey of the Ego is about heart and resilience. Inspired by Dawn Jani Birley’s life as a Deaf person facing audism, her struggle for equity is relatable to all dealing with oppression. Birley turns to the philosophy of Rumi to transform her isolation, anger, and frustration into a force of love in the world.

Collectively written by: Salla Fagerström, Debbie Z. Rennie, Deb’e Taylor and Dawn Jani Birley
Directed by: Debbie Z. Rennie
