Spirit21 Events is delighted to present “Jesus – A Muslim Storytelling Performance” by Khayaal Theatre Company
Sunday 20 December 2015, 2.30pm, Pinner Village Hall
Enjoy a warm, engaging storytelling experience bringing to life the story of Jesus as recounted in the Qur’an. This performance will be especially enjoyable for children and families. It will be followed by a conversation with Khayaal’s Creative Director.
A dark night. The kingdom of a cruel king. In a sacred temple, a woman preparing for worship lights a lamp only to be startled by a much brighter light. An angel conveys the heavenly news of a blessed child: Jesus, peace be upon him.
A reverent and atmospherically rich performance of the story of the prophet known as the Spirit of God follows, from his miraculous birth to his glorious ascension.
Khayaal’s Christmas storytelling offering presents an episodic account of the life of Prophet Isa (as) interspersed with his teachings from the Qur’an and the Bible based on traditional Islamic and Christian sources.
We are very fortunate that the performance will be followed by a reflection and conversation by Khayaal’s Creative Director on the centrality of story and dream in Islam and Muslim history stemming from the Qur’an as ‘The Story’ (Al-Qasas), the Prophet (s) and Allah (swt) as storytellers.

This breath of Jesus, which brings a new dawn each hour, rouses the head of the sleeping world from the dust.
