Noor is a play, concert, performance experiment, and live installation, which follows a family living in Toronto in 2018. Noor, a young woman embarking on adulthood, faces the absence of her mother, and looks for shelter in a relationship with another young woman. Noor’s father struggles to establish a relationship with his daughter. As each character struggles internally with identity, faith, belonging, and displacement, they look to Rumi and the untraceable path of his muse Shams Tabriz.  (
