I'm Muslamic, Don't Panik!

This event has passed

Spoken word meets dance, live music meets clowning. An intimate spectacle of identity, where being British, Iranian, and a Hip-Hop head collide.

From Bristol to the Tehran marathon and back again, Bobak invites us to join him on a journey to accept his own heritage, against a media culture which holds fast to the idea that the Middle East is a frightening and dangerous place. A joyful evening of dance theatre, it’s through meeting a series of weird and wonderful characters from across the world that Bobak is finally able to truly know himself.
