In Conversation: Celebrating Arab Artistry
McGuire Proscenium Stage
From our production of Noura to the series of Arab presentations in the Dowling Studio, the Guthrie is proud to celebrate Arab artistry on our stages this season. Join us for a dynamic discussion that will explore what it means to create theater through an Arab lens in the U.S. and beyond. Representing an array of backgrounds and voices, our panel of Arab theatermakers will share and compare stories from their lives, careers and experiences as artists.
The conversation will be moderated by Taous Claire Khazem, assistant director for Noura, and feature the following panelists:
- Hanane Hajj Ali (Lebanon), writer and performer of Jogging
- Kathryn Haddad (U.S.), artistic and executive director of New Arab American Theater Works and writer of Zafira and the Resistance
- Joseph Haj (U.S.), artistic director of the Guthrie Theater
- Heather Raffo, writer of Noura
- Amir Nizar Zuabi (Palestine), writer and director of Grey Rock
The Guthrie’s In Conversation series invites the community to listen in on thought-provoking discussions with artists and cultural leaders on topics related to current or upcoming work on our stages. Each behind-the-scenes experience includes a Q&A session between the audience and the featured guests.
