Abstract

This article presents the analysis of Ibn Rumi in City Slums (1976), a play written by Abdelkrim Berchid, a Moroccan dramatist. In this sense, it seeks to unravel the play’s festive lineaments in addition to its festive message. Through this article, the turn to Arab-Muslim narrative- performative stances which took places in the 1970s is highlighted. That is, the narrative- performative stance characteristic of festive theatre practice is examined in order to dwell on the aesthetic and epistemological orientations of Moroccan theatre in the 1970s. In a nutshell, the play is assessed on the basis of a historical and epistemological correlative.
