THEATER/MOVEMENT

TODAY, FRIDAY 7/21 at 4:30 - POTLUCK MEAL WITH THE CAST & CREATORS - Bring your favorite dish!

Fusing together found text, dance and real life events, The Anthropologists brilliantly interweave two stories of the fight against oppression: one ancient and one very modern. Inspired by the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, Mahalla captures the spirit of the Arab Spring and juxtaposes it with the Passover story of the Jews' escape from the hands of the Pharaoh. Acclaimed Berkshire Fringe alumni The Anthropologists (Give Us Bread, 2010) return with a vibrant collaborative creation investigating the intersections between food, ritual, storytelling and the pursuit of freedom.
