May 18th & 20th at 7pm
New York Theatre Workshop, 3rd Floor
79 East 4th Street, NYC
Directors Kareem Fahmy, Noelle Ghoussaini, and Pirronne Yousefzadeh present three works-in-process, spun out of Middle Eastern myths and lore, which will be rehearsed and devised in a week-long workshop culminating in a public presentation. Whether excavating sections from the epic Persian poem, The Shahnemeh; using Phoenician myth as inspiration for a piece about forgotten gods; or exploring the origins of djinn, these original pieces aim to shed light on contemporary society, while contextualizing ancient methods, beliefs or stories.
Featuring: Tala Ashe, Lachrisha Brown, Tucker Bryan, Leila Buck, Joe Curnutte, Fahim Hamid, Eric T. Miller, Sade Namei, Babek Tafti, and Corey Triplett
