Generic Ensemble Company



June 2017

Devised by the ensemble.
SCHEHERAZADE centers around collaborators of Middle Eastern descent, using the Arabian Night stories as a basis for exploring Islamophobia, terrorism, detention, and the "Muslim Ban." In an international airport in "The States," Scheherazade must tell stories to save her life. Interweaving queer love stories in the context of xenophobia, diaspora and fundamentalism, SCHEHERAZADE asks: what are the stories that take us home?
