Faqeer Nimaana: Embodying the faqeer, Shah Hussain and his words in music and dance. The path of love is a needle’s eye. Be a thread. Go through. Shah Hussain was mystic weaver poet from 16th century Lahore. His charkha spins, a metaphor for life and death, perennial movement and time itself but only a single thread can dare to enter the needle’s eye, beyond which all divisions of religion, caste, gender, sexuality, and nation must break to find a new way of being. We pay tribute to “Faqeer Nimaana”, the egoless Malang in his irreverence, his defiance and his wisdom by bringing to life his Kafi is in song and dance. We celebrate our urs, a festival of light in the name of Shah Hussain and his Hindu lover Madho Lal. We celebrate a path of love beyond borders.
