Event description
In-Session: Sabba Elahi with Ahalya Satkunaratnam & Mohamed Mehdi "Darmiyaan"

About this Event

"Darmiyaan"

Through a collaborative performance, Sabba Elahi and Ahalya Satkunaratnam engage in a shared practice of remembrance, mourning, ritual, and protest about the on-going war on terror and the importance of naming and honoring the dead. Reflecting on land as the place in which prayer enacts itself, the material on which war is fought, and the space that is loved and lost, the audience is brought into a shared space of remembrance and personal implication. The guiding text for the conversation is Fatima Asghar’s poem “If They Should Come for Us.”

Light refreshments will be served. A microphone will be used for amplification. Service animals are permitted. We ask that everyone attending please refrain from using scented products. Our space is barrier free.

Threewalls is located at 2738 West North Avenue near the northeast corner of California Avenue, along the North Avenue (#72) and California Avenue (#52) bus routes.

We strive to host events that enable all individuals to participate fully. For any additional questions about accessibility, please contact us via phone at 773-661-1823 or email info@three-walls.org.
