Egyptian writer, director and actor Dalia Basiouny visited campus in September to perform her one-woman show, Solitaire. The show is based on Basiouny’s own journey to shape her identity— and to search for peace, with self and the world—during the changing reality of arab americans and arabs living in the united States after 9/11. The performance documents dramatically and visually some of these experiences, highlighting the events of 9/11 through the January 2011 egyptian Revolution in Tahrir Square as the main catalysts for current changes in the world. Cosponsored by the dean Rusk international Studies Program and the Theatre department, Solitaire was performed in Cunningham Theatre Center’s Barber Theatre.
