About the Performer


Ibrahim Miari

Ibrahim Miari is a Palestinian-Israeli actor who recently graduated from the Boston University School of Theatre. In Between is a semi-autobiographical piece that portrays the complexities and contradictions inherent in Palestinian-Israeli identity. The show recalls Ibrahimís childhood in Acco, memories of his Jewish and Palestinian grandmothers, of war, and of the struggle to shape and understand his own multi-faceted identity - a struggle further complicated by his imminent marriage to a Jewish American woman. The play was first presented as part of a thesis project at Boston University's School of Theatre, College of Fine Arts.
