Middle East – New Perspectives

Camden County College is excited to host their lecture series “Middle East – New Perspectives” at 6:30 PM on Wednesdays in Civic Hall.

Week 1: In Between, Presented by Ibrahim Miari

“In Between” is a one-man, semi-autobiographical theater performance on growing up the son of a Muslim Palestinian father and Israeli Jewish mother.  It portrays the complexities and contradictions inherent in Palestinian-Israeli identity. On the precipice between two cultures stands Ibrahim Miari. His play recalls his childhood in Acre, memories of his Jewish and Palestinian grandmothers, of war, and of the struggle to shape and understand his own multifaceted identity.

Ibrahim Miari grew up in Israel and is a bilingual Hebrew and  Arabic speaker. Ibrahim is a certified language teacher, having completed the Hebrew teacher training program and ACTFL MOPI at Hebrew College, as well as the STARTALK Arabic teacher professional development program and ACTFL OPI certification at Boston University. Ibrahim has taught Hebrew at TUFTS University and Hebrew College’s Prozdor Program, as well as Arabic at Boston University and Northeastern University. In addition to teaching languages, Ibrahim is a professional actor who has performed in theater and film throughout Israel, Europe, and the United States.  He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Theatre Education from Boston University.
