Students work within themes of borders, identity, violence and reconciliation in a performance, followed by a talkback with the actors and director on issues relevant to the Middle East and NM.

Against the backdrop of rising tension and violence in the Middle East, this original production interweaves voices of Israeli, Palestinian, New Mexican youth and IAIA students on themes of borders, identity, violence, and reconciliation. The one-hour performance is followed by a talkback with the actors and director exploring issues relevant to both the Middle East and New Mexico. Tickets will be available at the door.

On Sunday, May 5, 10:30 am - 6 pm at Meow Wolf, spectators will have the unique opportunity to engage with the same content that served as the stimulus for Tearing Down Walls; to create their own dramatic response to this material; to share their work with the performers and other audience members during that evening's post-performance discussion. A portion of the $125 workshop fee will be donated to Creativity for Peace. Open to participants 16 years and up. For further information, contact Nandita Dinesh: nanditadinesh@gmail.com.
