October 27, 2017, Friday - Birds Sing Differently Here opens at The Guthrie (3 nights)

Time: 7:30pm

Location: Guthrie Theater, 818 Second Street S

Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project present: Birds Sing Differently Here

created by Dylan Fresco, Taous Claire Khazem and Iraqi Voices program participants

directed by Taous Claire Khazem

October 27 - 29

Based on the true stories of 12 Iraqi-Minnesotan refugees and immigrants, Birds Sing Differently Here is an original theater piece which weaves together tales of sweetness, sorrow, grief and discovery. Inventively performed in both English and Arabic, participants of the Iraqi Voices program come together with a cast of professional actors to tell “the story of a thousand olive pits and seven thousand praises, tokens of love and a chilling escape from the desert of death.” Birds Sing Differently Here shares the ache of endings and the fullness of new opportunity.
