We will be workshopping the show in January and then again in April and May with a performance at the Georgetown Lab for Performance and Politics' Crosscurrents Festival in Washington D.C. in May!

On January 4th, I'll be performing in a work in progress staged reading of Iphigenia Point Blank a new multi-disciplinary piece that examines the plight of refugees through the lens of Euripidies character Iphigenia. The production features original film and music alongside scripted material to tackle the paralells of refugees past and present. The play is written by Lisa Schlesinger, composed by Kinan Azmeh, directed by Marion Schoevaert with a film by Irinia Patkanian. The lead Iphigenia is played by Layale Chaker on the violin.
