ABOUT THIS PLAY
Conceived and Created by Kholoud Sawaf
A special workshop production—10,000 Balconies is a new play, conceived, created and directed by Kholoud Sawaf (director of T2’s Vietgone), loosely inspired by Romeo and Juliet, and set in modern Syria. 10,000 Balconies is an intimate window into the oldest continuously-inhabited city in the world, suffused with its poetry, music, dance, and movement, and centered on a story of love in contemporary Damascus.
* Performances on 8/30 and 8/31 will include the opportunity to take part in a post-show conversation facilitated by Andrea Assaf, a writer, performer, director and cultural organizer who is founding artistic and executive director of Art2Action Inc.

10,000 Balconies is made possible in part by The Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
