Performance looks at 9/11 and global loss
DEARBORN---A troupe of actors from New York City will present Kitchen Prayers, a performance dialogue on 9/11 and global loss at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 12 in the School of Management auditorium.
The event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the CASL, the Humanities department, the African-American Studies Program and the Women's Studies Program. It is funded through the King-Chavez-Parks Visiting Professors Initiative administered by the Office of the Provost.
Kitchen Prayers is conceived and directed by theatre and drama Prof. Glenda Dickerson, director of the Center for World Performance Studies at the Ann Arbor campus.
"Kitchen Prayers is a very engaging performance that has been staged in the U.S. and abroad," according to English Prof. Poonam Arora, co-chair of the Department of Humanities. "It invites audience participation and attempts to relate the experience of 9/11 to suffering and loss around the world. We would like to place this assessment within the local context of Dearborn and in a time of international conflict."
