Community Partners for the Project
Our community partners have been instrumental in developing this production. They organized workshops early 2010 for us to meet and discuss with women what stories from quran and hadith (stories from the life of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him) are inspiring them in the 21st Century. This process informed the production in many ways such as deciding which epic stories from Islamic history to use to commission the composers, to identifying lesser known stories. We also took inspiration from the women in terms of what they would like to feel and how these stories translate to modern day life, as well as consulting with them around the music. Our heart felt thanks to all our partners and the individual women who support this work.
