Ten Acrobats in an Amazing Leap of Faith

$10 - $15

Ten Acrobats in an Amazing Leap of Faith

by Yussef El Guindi.

Take a delightful leap with us into the world of the Fawzi family as they walk a tight rope between the values of two cultures, fly the trapeze of inter-generational conflict and take a leap of faith into the mysteries of human understanding.

In the process of making theatre, we build a bridge from the boundaries of our individual experiences to the world that the playwright gives us. El Guindi invites a multicultural ensemble to explore and discover the world of a Muslim-American family as they encounter the pitfalls of maintaining these two, sometimes conflicting, identities and to extend a bridge of understanding to our audience and our community.

I chose this play as an act of resistance because I reject the overwhelmingly negative and violent representation of Muslims in our national media, culture and art. Our theatre production will reveal both the deep spiritual beauty and the contradictions within the Muslim religion. Ultimately, it shows an American family that shares the same problems and struggles with most other American families, and it does so in an extremely entertaining and accessible work of theatre.
