Silk Road Rising
Caitlin Duernick, Production Manager

Production Description

Silk Road Rising is casting "Invasion!," a play be Hassen Khemiri, directed by Anna Bahow. Invasion! is a tornado of words, images and ideas, all centered around a magical name: Abulkasem. The play assaults our deepest prejudices about identity, race and language. At once hilarious, disturbing and poignant, this deeply subversive play deconstructs a threatening identity – the Arabic male – and forces us to confront our own cultural identity.
