Sufi poetry in chicago
Hope to see you at DEAF MUSLIM EXPO! I did research on authentic Sufi / Islamic poetry and read a lot of books, so I made sure not to use fake, Pinterest-style English translations created by non-Muslims which are widely (sadly) prevalent online. My poetry show will have American Sign Language, video and English subtitles.
You can catch my solo poetry performance at DEAF MUSLIM EXPO this weekend!

My performance of Allah Earth: The Cycle of Life was a great success at the DEAFinitions Conference at Hampshire College.

Thanks to everyone in Tucson for coming out to see me perform my show Allah Earth: The Cycle of Life at Exploded View for Tucson Fringe Theatre Festival. I got to meet fantastic people and I've made new friends, too. I also raised money from my performance for International Rescue Committee for their tireless work with refugees in Tucson.
I also got a chance to speak with deaf teenagers at Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind, sharing information with them about my works as a filmmaker, performer and playwright. It was a great talk and I feel fortunate to share some invaluable advice with them.
I look forward to performing Allah Earth: The Cycle of Life again for new audiences in some other places in the coming months. Here are some photos below.
