The Dialogue Institute is co-sponsoring a special performance of "In Between," a one-man show that portrays the complexities inherent in Israeli-Palestinian identity

The show explores writer/actor Ibrahim Miari's grappling with the many — and sometimes contradictory — aspects of his identity as an Arab-Israeli raised by a Muslim father and Jewish mother, as he and his Jewish fiancee prepare to marry. His play recalls his childhood in Acco, memories of his Jewish and Palestinian grandmothers, of war and of the struggle to shape and understand his own multi-faceted identity. Miari uses an astonishingly creative combination of Sufi dance, larger-than-life puppets, humor, pain, anger and deep compassion to tell this story. The performance will be followed by a discussion with Miari and an analyst member of Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts (PAJA)/Philadelphia Jung Institute, which is presenting the event (details at http://cgjungphiladelphia.org/).

Tickets are $25. Discounted parking is available for lots at 1845 Walnut Street and 2101 Chestnut Street. Questions about the event should be directed to PAJA's Director of Public Programs, Sarah Braun, at [email protected].

The Dialogue Institute, founded in 1978, teaches religious, civic and academic leaders around the world the skills of respectful dialogue and critical thinking, empowering them to build and sustain transformative relationships across lines of religion and culture. It provides resources and creates networks for intra-and inter-religious scholarship and action that value difference and foster human dignity. More info at http://www.dialogueinstitute.org.
