Deen & Dunya
Deen & Dunya is a poetry night that celebrates and elevates Muslim voices. Since its inception, it has enjoyed sell-out nights at Bush Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe, headlining the Shakespeare & Race Festival.
Responding to themes in Word-Play, these two special events will see emerging and renowned poets create original work around the power of language, reclamation and expression.. Ten poets across two events will work closely with a DJ to blend sound and lyricism together and disrupt the boxes Muslims are often squashed into
In collaboration with Open Court, Deen & Dunya will mentor two early career poets who will write & perform an original set created specifically around Word-Play.
Expect an evening punctuated with poetry, soundtracked by a live DJ – Deen & Dunya is an authentically Muslim space that is sure to light a spark in your heart.
It will be a free, ticketed event.
Hosted by actor & poet Azan Ahmed.
Deen & Dunya is produced by Azan Ahmed & Khameleon Productions.
