Ping Chong + Company Beyond Sacred: Voices of Muslim Identity

Flynn MainStage Map It

  • Thursday, October 25, 2018, 7:30 PM


“An exercise in empathy, not polemics: a lesson in human understanding, drawn from real lives.” —New York Times

Beyond Sacred is an interview-based theater production exploring the social challenges faced by young Muslims— at school, at work, and anywhere else. The five young performers hail from diverse backgrounds, reflecting a wide range of Muslim identities. Together, their true stories create a beautiful, funny, and intensely poignant cry for tolerance. Beyond Sacred transports audiences from ignorance to knowledge, from estrangement to connection, and from wariness and fear to acceptance and love.

* The performance culminates in a post-show talk.
* Student Matinee Series performance
* Teacher Workshop/Panel Discussion

Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity, and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President’s Initiative for Diversity.
