Named for a blend of Middle Eastern spices, Za’atar is an evening featuring three dynamic, female, Arab American, contemporary artists: Leila Awadallah, Sharon Mansur, and Leyya Mona Tawil. Each utilizes interdisciplinary and experimental approaches to create evocative dance/performance/visual environments while addressing distinct aspects of Arab culture and identity, drawing from Palestinian, Syrian and Lebanese heritages. This event will feature solo work by each artist as well as a newly devised collaborative trio.
