Eleven Reflections on September is a spoken word, multi-media performance on the Arab American experience, Wars on/of Terror, and “the constant, quiet rain of death amidst beauty” that each autumn brings in a post-9/11 world. Music, poetry and movement interweave in an immersive environment, asking us to reflect on what has changed, and for whom.
This multi-disciplinary project includes community dialogues, an interactive visual art exhibit, Open Mics and more, in partnership with Hi-ARTS!
“Tonight was unbelievable–Eleven Reflections on September is a must see!!! Thank you, Andrea Assaf, for reminding us and inspiring us to speak for peace and justice… Thank you for creating a magical night!”
– Nimo Farah, African Community Development Center
“Profound work. Brings the gruesomeness of war into reality. Stimulates me to be more vocal about my concerns about our militarism and foreign policy… Thank you.”
– Elizabeth Heefner
