What happens when you assemble the real-life experiences of a former refugee, who left Egypt in the 1970s, from the perspective of his daughter, a Mixed kid who came of age in the pre-and-post 9/11 era? What happens when you take their stories, add some whimsy from the 1001 Nights, and infuse them with a bit of good old post-structuralist theory? Now put all this into a blender, together with a dash of the absurd, a pinch of melodrama, some light, shadow, a projectors of course, and what do you get? Well, you get the zany, hyper-world of The Shoe Maker’s Son. Using a variety of performance techniques including story-telling and object puppetry, Amira brings to life this heart-warming tale of her father’s migration from Egypt in the 1970’s.

Performed by Amira Abdel-Malek
