Burqavaganza – A love story in the time of jihad – is a sassy, provocative Bollywood
extravaganza, written by Pakistan\’s most prolific and progressive playwright, Shahid Nadeem,
co-founder of Ajoka Theatre in Lahore, Pakistan. Burqavaganza uses the burqa as a metaphor for
a society that thrives on double standards and covering up the truth. The entire cast, male and
female, wears a burqa. Burqavaganza goes toe to toe with the long standing obsession with the
burqa, face-veil, niqab, hijab, parda – and offers a side-splitting critique on rising
fundamentalism, political corruption, and the War on Terror. Banned in Pakistan by the National
Arts Council in 2010, Burqavaganza is a ground breaking political satire that provokes the
audience to rethink and lift the veil of prejudice, outdated values, and hypocrisy within all
societies.
