My Arab Fall
Jul. 25, 2015
Imagine if Spaulding Gray woke up one morning as a 45-year-old Latina amidst the multitudes in Tahrir Square, shoulder to shoulder with her Egyptian hermanas and raising a fist in solidarity with the women of Cairo. My Arab Fall is a multi-media theatrical performance drawn from a Chicana's experiences traveling in Egypt months after their Arab Spring. Seen through the eyes of two women - a naive yet eager American tourist and a an Egyptian activist fighting to change the world she lives in - this piece is a sometimes comical, sometimes harrowing exploration of gender, religion, sexual assault and everyday life in the Middle East amid the dramatic political changes taking place.
Anna De Luna writes and performs this dramatically charged performative travelogue with Monessa Esquivel.
