Have Arab Coffee with a Jew
in the New York City of the Middle East.
What? There were Jews in Iraq?
In the 1920s, Baghdad
was 25% Jewish.
Enveloped in the trappings of a Baghdad inspired café, audiences will be exposed to a collage of stories culled from memoirs, primary sources and poetry that introduce them to a face of a city different from violent and fractured Baghdad encountered on television and in the newspaper today. Step back into 1928, enter a profoundly modern and cosmopolitan city which presents a paradigm of Jewish, Muslim and Christian coexistence often obscured today, but reflective of trends across the Middle East and North Africa at the time.
Available for Touring Performances.
