Ibrahim Miari, the mind behind this extraordinary solo production, invites you to discover the beauty of his multicultural identity. As the son of a Jewish Israeli mother and a Palestinian Muslim father, Ibrahim takes us on a rollercoaster ride through his vibrant life – from his childhood school days to the dancing of his wedding day.
Through self-effacing wit, irresistible humor, and yes, even puppets, Ibrahim explores the complexities and contradictions that shaped his journey. Prepare to be both enlightened and entertained as he weaves together a tapestry of stories that celebrate the rich diversity of his unique heritage.
The play touches upon issues such as identity, culture, religion, traditions, and the tensions between Jews and Arabs, Israelis and Palestinians.
The show has been performed the show at theater festivals, universities, Hillels, synagogues, churches across the US as well as at international theater festivals.
