Theatre and Islam Paperback / softback
Part of the Theatre And series
This insightful and engaging new title in the Theatre & series explores the various connections between theatre and Islam.
Drawing on both historical and recent examples to trace their relationship and offer a new perspective on a topical subject, this persuasive text argues against a long-standing assumption that Islam has worked in opposition to theatrical presentation.
From the thirteenth century puppet plays of Ibn Daniyal to Islamic themes in twenty-first century productions, Theatre and Islam is chronologically wide-ranging and ambitious in its scope. Ambitious yet concise, this is the perfect introduction for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Religious Studies, Islamic Studies, Middle Eastern Studies and Drama.
