Letters from Palestine in the Time of the Virus was conceived and created for live Zoom performance, with local Seattle actors and other community members reading a series of texts adapted and arranged from writings, words and quotations by Palestinians living under the multiple threats of coronavirus and ongoing Israeli occupation, assault and blockade. The original texts are from Haneen Abdalnabi, Ali Abusheikh, Aziz Abuzayed, Issam Adwan, Ramzy Baroud, Basman Derawi, Iman Hamed, Mazin Qumsiyah, Raed Shakshak, and Noor Yacoubi. Several passages are drawn from stories at We Are Not Numbers, a website project gathering stories and writings from youth in Gaza.
Local author Ramzy Baroud, who grew up in Gaza, is one of the original writers and will join the performance for post-play comments and discussion about the current and ongoing situation for Palestinians.
The short play and discussion will last about one hour total. The time of day has been chosen to make the live performance available for Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, 9 hours ahead of Pacific Time.
