"In Between": A One-Man Performance

Monday, December 1, 2014 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm
The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut St.

Ibrahim Miari, University of Pennsylvania 

"In Between" is a one-man, semi-autobiographical theater performance on growing up the son of a Muslim Palestinian father and an Israeli Jewish mother.


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. His play recalls his childhood in Acre, memories of his Jewish and Palestinian grandmothers, of war, and of the struggle to shape and understand his own multi-faceted identity.
