Mahmud Ile Yezida archiveA sacred tree, a chalk circle that no one can cross, Melek Taus, the Peacock Angel watching over all. Two young lovers Mahmud and Yezida come from very different worlds. He is Muslim, she is Yazidi, a secretive religion, often mistaken for Satanism. Separated by persecution and intolerance, their families must come to terms with the real price of their hatred, and the real possibility of their loss... A powerful twist on Romeo and Juliet, Mahmud and Yezida is one of the most beloved and performed texts in Turkish theatre. Part of Arcola Creative Engagement Winter Season 2015. Performed in Turkish with English surtitles.
