Amm(i)gone

May 23 @ 8:00 am - June 23 @ 5:00 pm


$49
Theater And Performance Studies Black Box At Yale University, 53 WALL STREET
NEW HAVEN, 06511


Creator and performer Adil Mansoor brings us on his deeply personal journey to translate and adapt the play Antigone with his Ammi (his mother). Despite the deep love between them, their relationship is strained – Ammi struggles to accept Adil’s queerness and turns towards her faith in an attempt to save her son in the afterlife. Adil turns to an ancient Greek theatrical text to break the silence between them. Amm(i)gone asks: How do you choose between love and faith? What is lost (or gained) in translation, and what transcends language itself? Through Greek tragedy, teachings from the Quran, and audio conversations in Urdu and English, Mansoor creates a theatrical blend of lecture and personal story about locating love across faith.

For those wishing to pray the sunset prayer, we invite you to use the prayer space across the lobby from the theatre.”
