The American Repertory Theater welcomes you to Stories From the Arab Spring: An Evening of Storytelling and Conversation inspired by similar live storytelling event, Palestinians, Live!, and A.R.T.’s current production, We Live in Cairo. We Live in Cairo is a world premiere musical that tells the story of six young Egyptian activists who took to the streets in 2011 to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and follows them in the aftermath of the revolution.

During the first half of the evening, real stories will be shared by people whose lives were changed by the Arab Spring uprisings. These true and poignant stories will feature humor, tragedy, and the many ways people confront adversity. After, join us for an intimate community dialogue to reflect on the stories, the musical, and how the world has changed since the Arab Spring.

Anyone is welcome to attend this event, both those who have and have not attended a performance of We Live in Cairo.

Refreshments and cash bar provided.

Storytellers include:

  • Daniel and Patrick Lazour
  • Kal Naga
  • Lama El Homaïssi
  • Hend Nafea
