Stories include themes of Arab American, Armenian and Iranian identity, roots and “being between worlds,” along with wild adventures to Israel, discovering Palestine in a Tel Aviv bookstore, a history of genocide, and Christians in Palestine. Performances by participants include traditional Debka dance, Assyrian dance, belly dancing, poetry, and song.
Free to the public, donations graciously accepted.
This program is presented by The Markaz, Arts Center for the Greater Middle East, with support from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA). Henry Ong is a Los Angeles playwright who has worked on many oral history and writing workshops in various communities (Sikh, Thai, Korean, Chinese, and Filipino, and the blind and visually-impaired). His plays have been produced nationally, including at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, and internationally in Singapore, the UK, and Canada. Elizabeth Malone is Chair of the Theatre Committee at The Markaz. She received her MFA from Columbia University and has worked with youth and the elderly creating theater in Palestine.
Special Thanks to Jeremy Srock for documenting the process.
