Leaves from Aleppo
Sunday, November 4 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm
Come to Alphabet City for a multimedia presentation of Leaves from Aleppo: Saleh. A translator in Syria, a mute Syrian poet deceased after imprisonment in the 1980s, and a Jewish-American writer from Clarion University – these are the elements of the true-life multimedia presentation Leaves from Aleppo: Saleh, a collage that was assembled, written, and performed by Philip Terman and Scott Minar. The performance piece is presented in the style of a dramatic stage reading, accompanied by audio recorded in Aleppo by Dr. Saleh Razzouk.
