May 1 Israeli Theatre event

This Monday (May 1) Alisa Solomon will be interviewing Israeli director Igal Ezraty, who co-founded a really intriguing collaborative Arab-Hebrew theatre in Jaffa. The event will also include a reading of excerpts from his documentary play Refusniks about Israeli soldiers resisting military service as a protest against the occupation.

It will be at the fine Martin E. Segal Center at the CUNY Graduate Center (5th Avenue & 34th St) as part of a series on international Documentary Theatre.

A PDF of Solomon's pre-9/11 interview with Ezraty for Yale Theater (entitled "Staging Reconciliation") can be downloaded here.

Yet another fascinating example of Israeli theatre outflanking our own to the left.
