‘Rumiyana’ is a musical puppet theatre performance based on the works of the great Sufi mystic, poet, and philosopher Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi, whose influence transcends all conceivable borders and unites people across categories of race, nationality, and gender. The Masnavi never gets old—indeed, its tales of love shine with renewed vigour each time we visit the poem. 
This production synergises puppets, actors, and dancers, to create a multimedia performance with music, animations, and digital projections. Using the metaphors of soul, body, and shadow, the performance explores the idea of the true self in consonance with the concepts of pluralism and the unity of all existence as One. Enacted by two artists essaying the roles of master and student, with the student being in present-day attire and the master evoking the Sufi saint Shams, the show celebrates love, unity, harmony, and diversity, safe in the knowledge that there are as many paths to the divine as there are seekers.
