Beyond Sacred is an interview-based theater production exploring the diverse experiences of Muslim communities within New York City. The five cast members vary in many ways and come from a range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds but share the common experience of coming of age in a post- 9/11 New York City, at a time of increasing Islamophobia. Beyond Sacred is part of Ping Chong + Company’s Undesirable Elements project, an oral history theater project exploring issues of culture, identity, and difference in the lives of individuals in specific communities.
Curation is by Gabri Christa, Snug Harbor’s Artistic Director. Schools contact firstname.lastname@example.org for reservation, reduced prices and preparation.
