Shame 2.0 “succeeds in creating a shared space where Jewish Israeli and Palestinian citizens and theatre spectators can pay attention profoundly to what’s happening in their society and are probed to give attention to address issues that are often suppressed,” according to Contemporary Art Practices in the Middle East.
Post-show discussions with guest panelists will follow the performance at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.
Tickets range from $10 to $65 and can be purchased here.
