Beyond Sacred: Voices of Muslim Identity
Ping Chong + Company
Friday, October 12, 2018 at 1PM
With stark simplicity and a narrative that feels remarkably relevant to the moment, Beyond Sacred stages the personal and complex stories of five young Muslim New Yorkers at a time of increasing Islamophobia. This interview-based theater production illuminates the daily experiences of individuals who reflect a wide range of Muslim identities, yet share the commonality of coming of age after 9/11 and of being the “other” in America. Together, their true stories create a beautiful, funny, and intensely poignant cry for tolerance at a time when such sentiments are more necessary than ever.
