I can’t believe that just two years after my first show Roots: A Journey Through India, I got the chance to play artistic director and tour ANOTHER production!
For the past 15 months, I’ve been working as a co-director and choreographer of Rihla: From Roots to Dreams. Our core team consisted of Azim Keshavjee (Music Director & Touring/Production Manager), Zaheed Damani (Scriptwriter & Multimedia), Karim Dewji (Al-Waez), Sophia Virani (Logistics) and our fearless leader Munir Budhwani (Member for Arts and Culture and Special Projects, Aga Khan Council for Canada).
We worked endless hours on this project as a team, but we were lucky to have the most amazing artists bringing Rihla to life - our cast and now our family. Thank you to our cast, crew, volunteers, and audiences for this 6 city, 8 show whirlwind that was pure magic and pure love.
