"God created sexual desire in ten parts,
then he gave nine parts to women and one part to men”
~ Ali ibn Abu Talib
Heather Raffo’s 9 PARTS OF DESIRE reveals the women behind the veil, taking us inside the hearts of a cross section of Iraqi women: a sexy painter, a radical communist, a doctor, an exile, and wives and lovers. One gifted performer will share the stories of these nine women, creating a stunning portrait – heartbreaking, hilarious, and ultimately transcendent.
9 PARTS OF DESIRE is a masterfully woven exploration of what it means to maintain a belief in love, and the possibility of finding peace, in a country overshadowed by war.
Described by The New Yorker as “an example of how art can remake the world,” these stories will unveil the strength of the feminine spirit that transcends culture.
