Today, its cities embody a paradoxical mix of globalization, modernity, and advanced technology with regionalism, tradition, and religion, juxtaposed with extreme poverty and inequality.

This working group foregrounds theatre and performance in Islamic countries and cultures, and representations of Muslim bodies on stage.
