A one-man show written and directed by Ibrahim Miari
Thursday, September 26 at 7:00 PM
In Between is a semi-autobiographical one man show that portrays the complexities and contradictions inherent in Palestinian-Israeli identity. On the precipice between two cultures stands Ibrahim Miari, son of a Palestinian Muslim father and Jewish Israeli mother. During an interrogation by Israeli airport security, he recalls his childhood in Acco, memories of his Jewish and Palestinian grandmothers, of war. Questions surrounding his identity become even further complicated by his imminent marriage to a Jewish American woman. A discussion with the artist will follow the performance.
Ibrahim Miari is a Distinguished Visiting Scholar at Suffolk University.
