VIDEO | Star Palestinian playwrights exercise "Permission to Narrate"


Three plays by major contemporary Palestinian playwrights will be performed as staged readings on consecutive nights in New York this month, under the title "Permission to Narrate."

Hosted by Columbia University's Center for Palestine Studies and curated by playwright and poet Ismail Khalidi, the plays, according to organizers, "embody the contemporary Palestinian playwright's use of art to resist historical, political and geographic erasures."

The sequence of plays starts on 25 March with Amir Nizar Zuabi's I am Yusuf and This is My Brother, which was staged in 2010 at London's Young Vic Theatre. Zuabi is one of the founders of Haifa's Shiber Hur Palestinian theater company and his plays about Palestine and Syria have been widely performed and published.
