The Dialogue Institute is co-sponsoring a special performance of "In Between," a one-man show that portrays the complexities inherent in Israeli-Palestinian identity, on April 9, 2016, 8:15-10:30 pm, at the Ethical Society of Philadelphia (1906 S. Rittenhouse Square).
The show explores writer/actor Ibrahim Miari's grappling with the many—and sometimes contradictory—aspects of his identity as an Arab-Israeli raised by a Muslim father and Jewish mother, as he and his Jewish fiancee prepare to marry. His play recalls his childhood in Acco, memories of his Jewish and Palestinian grandmothers, of war and of the struggle to shape and understand his own multi-faceted identity. Miari uses an astonishingly creative combination of Sufi dance, larger-than-life puppets, humor, pain, anger and deep compassion to tell this story.
The performance will be followed by a discussion with Miari and an analyst member of Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts (PAJA)/Philadelphia Jung Institute, which is presenting the event.
