How can theatre be used as a tool for activism? In this theatre workshop for Arab American Association New York staff and community members, Art of Hijab, Kohl Black & the Right Way to Pray writer Sarah Badiyah Sakaan and director Jessica Brater will lead participants through exercises drawing on personal experience and current events to create playlets that empower AAANY staff and members to combine political and creative expression in unexpected ways. Participants are invited to bring in a news article about a political issue that hits close to home for them. Wear clothing comfortable to move in. All other material will be provided.
