AKM - THE ROAD

THE ROAD

Theatre

31 May Tuesday

İstanbul State Theatre

Written and directed by Ozan Uçar

A true lover of The Righteous, Yunus Emre leaves the soils where he was born and raised and sets out on a “ROAD” to find spiritual reality. As he proceeds on the roads of Anatolia, he learns of other followers of Tasawwuf who have set out on their own journeys to find the truth and who have enriched Anatolia in terms of spirituality – either personally or through others’ knowledge of them.
