Dead Are My People, a new work created by Ismail Khalidi with music by Hadi Eldebek, follows Nicola, who flees the famine-stricken mountains of Lebanon for the U.S. during WWI. Once there, he hopes to track down his uncle Tanios who emigrated years before. Finding few traces of Tanios, besides his peddler cart, and conflicting information of townspeople, Nicola must ultimately navigate the treacherous terrain of the Jim Crow South. Audience talkback will follow this staged reading.
Prior to the show at 6:30 p.m., AANM offers guests an opportunity to stroll through its new exhibition, THEM: Images of Separation, a project created by the Jim Crow Museum to highlight hurtful stereotypes of Arab and Muslim Americans.
Made possible in part by the National Performance Network* and MAP Fund.
