In Between is a semi-autobiographical one-man show that portrays the complexities and contradictions inherent in Palestinian-Israeli identity.
Presented by: Center for Middle Eastern Studies and Center for Jewish Studies
Admission: Admission free (tickets or RSVPs not required). All are welcome.
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 Acre, 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. Written and performed by Ibrahim Miari.
