    He Who Burns

    Presented by Harvard College Pakistan Students Association & Harvard Pakistani Students Group
    Farkas Hall (formerly New College Theatre)
    Harvard Square

    He Who Burns is an exploration through dance, text and music of the figure of Iblis, Satan, as understood in some Sufi traditions. Through this lens, we explore the nature of humanity's relationship with the divine, the eternal quest for unity and the illusion of duality in the human experience.

    He Who Burns takes us on a journey from the time before time, through the suffering of Iblis in his separation from his Beloved and his quest for the same, through to his ecstatic annihilation. The text, from the Persian, Arabic and Urdu of Al-Hallaj, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Mohammed Iqbal, Farid ud-din Attar, Hafiz and Maulana Jelaluddin Rumi, is performed in Urdu, English

    The performance will be preceded by a short lecture to introduce the audience to key narrative elements.
