The Remember Project's "Mango Songs"

Join us for the world premiere of "Mango Songs," a new play by Alia Jeraj. The play follows Alia’s journey of (re)membering/(re)learning. From the intimacy of witnessing their dad’s Alzheimer’s, to the memory loss that happens when families move across oceans and adopt new languages and customs. Alia asks, “How do you find a memory everyone has forgotten?”

This is an extraordinary opportunity to join other Summit attendees in the often life-changing experience of The Remember Project, using theater arts to open authentic and insightful dialogue among participants.

Playwright and Actor: Alia Jeraj

Director: Suzy Messerole & Aamera Siddiqui

Director of Photography: Hannah Robb

The theatrical video for "Mango Songs" is a creative collaboration between The Remember Project and Exposed Brick Theatre.
