Birmingham's Quran Performance
Aerasol Arabic | Mohammed Ali | Soul City Arts

When the Birmingham Quran was exhibited in the city, artist Mohammed Ali put together something that celebrated its discovery as one of the oldest in the world.

The Birmingham Quran, was not just something of historical significance, but it connected with so many spiritually in the city, so It felt appropriate to put on something that involved community voices and engaged with them in a meaningful way. Seeing and hearing these ancient scriptures bounce across the walls of the city’s museum as a unique immersive performance was truly a historic moment.

The people of Birmingham had come together that day to celebrate this important discovery of global significance.
