A chorus of voices gently demolishing the notion of Muslim culture as monolithic. Beyond Sacred is a lesson in human understanding, drawn from real lives.

Beyond Sacred: Voices of Muslim Identity
Ping Chong + Company
Fri., Oct. 12 at 7PM
Tickets: $15 & $25
With stark simplicity and a narrative that feels remarkably relevant to the moment, Beyond Sacred stages the personal and complex stories of five young Muslim New Yorkers at a time of increasing Islamophobia. This interview-based theater production illuminates the daily experiences of individuals who reflect a wide range of Muslim identities, yet share the commonality of coming of age after 9/11 and of being the “other” in America. Together, their true stories create a beautiful, funny, and intensely poignant cry for tolerance at a time when such sentiments are more necessary than ever.

This engagement of Ping Chong + Company is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
