“In Between” is a semiautobiographical one-man show that portrays the complexities and contradictions inherent in Palestinian-Israeli identity. Ibrahim Miari stands on the precipice between two cultures. 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 multifaceted identity.
Performance followed by Q&A.
