Palestine: Nothing Makes Sense, Why Should I? // Performance 02.18.2016

A performance by Suad Amiry at the James Gallery

This event featured Suad Amiry, a Palestinian writer, conservation architect, and political/social activist, who performed from her internationally acclaimed memoir Sharon and My Mother in Law: Ramallah Diaries (Random House, 2005). Based on the diaries and correspondence Amiry kept from 1981 to 2004, the text uses humor and irony eloquently to describe the reality, absurdity, and cruelty of living in the Occupied Territories under a prolonged Israeli Occupation. The event was moderated by Oyku Tekten, and followed by a Q&A session.
