The play "Banner of Kova "is based on the classic poem "Shahnameh" by Abulkasim Firdousi and directed by the theater's Director Nazim Melikov. The purpose of this performance is to warn people not to stray from the path of knowledge and wisdom. At the beginning of the show, king Jamshid, after 400 years of successful rule, destroyed everything in one senseless act, calling himself a God. This action angered the people, and they chose the Demon Zahak as their new King. Zahak is a man who loves a career and longs for wealth, he even killed his own father to become a Slave to the Devil. In a society where wisdom is not highly valued, the devil will rule forever. Why have so many great empires in human history fallen after a period of success and prosperity?

What are the roots of violence, hostility and hatred among people?

Why do people kill each other in the name of God even today?

Why do people allow mindless and cruel rulers to come to power?

What are the main sources of these evil actions?

After watching this performance, people will easily find answers to these questions.

The theme of this play is important not only for our society, but also for the peoples of the world. The goal of the author and Director of this show is to encourage people, especially the younger generation, not to be indifferent to their future, but to learn science and art, wisdom and knowledge, and avoid ethnic and religious radicalization. The main cause of instability, wars, emigration, conflicts and hatred of each other around the world is distance from education, science, art and knowledge. People should know that the source of all these misfortunes is themselves and their own thoughts, words and actions.

Think about what lies ahead;

Choose a Good Goal and go straight to it.
