Darbar Fringe Festival - The Miseducation of Luna Khan

Darbar Fringe Festival - The Miseducation of Luna Khan


Darbar Fringe Festival - The Miseducation of Luna Khan

A hijab-wearing teenager finds herself marooned on 'The Heart of Suffering', an island governed by an African scientist called Buckminster Abdullah, where she meets a cast of fairy-tale characters, including werewolves and fairy drag queens.

Shane Solanki leads the musical cast in this satirical performance questioning what identity and belonging mean in an increasingly globalised world. Told through spoken word, film and music, The Miseducation of Luna Khan is a modern-day fable for grown-up children who feel lost at sea in the 21st century.

Solanki's live performances combine provocation and comedy with deft lyricism, offering poignant reflections on contemporary politics. His writing explores themes of social justice, including sustainability, gender equality, and the impacts of migration on culture and society.
