Join Us for Discussion on Wrestling Jerusalem
By Fedwa Wazwaz, Engage Minnesota
This Saturday, I was invited to collaborate with the Guthrie Theater and join creator/performer Aaron Davidman for a discussion on his play Wrestling Jerusalem.
Wrestling Jerusalem, is a play written and performed by Aaron Davidman with direction by Michael John Garcés Set in America, Israel and Palestine. The play follows one man’s journey to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Davidman’s performance is a personal story that grapples with the complexities of identity, history and social justice. Giving voice to 17 different characters, the play sheds light on one of the most entrenched conflicts of our time.
Please join us this Saturday, Guthrie Theater, at 1 pm. The play is 82 minutes long. A community discussion and my feedback will follow.
