'In the silence of love you will find the spark of life' - RUMI This open Studio is a short presentation of the work process of Omar Rajeh's new creation that will premiere in November 2021 at Espaces des Arts – Chalon sur Soâne. Inspired by the Persian poet Jalal-al-Din Rumi’s love poems, Cent Mille Façons de Parler is a work about desire, passion, and extreme moments of love. Rumi serves, in this performance, as a starting point to explore the question of Love in its extreme, in its becoming a drive, a passion, and a way of life. Photo by Julien Piffaut
