Crowdfunding for our upcoming performance is LIVE!
My Heart is in the East is a duet between two poets (a Muslim man and a Jewish woman) in two centuries (The 21st and the 11th). We cross time, gender, race, religion and language to bridge the conflicts between them. Will violence, suspicion, and fear stop cultural exchange and destroy a unique and unlikely friendship? Or will poetry, humanity, love and humor win out? Following each performance, the audience is invited to engage in a poetry contest, similar to the historical ones explored in the play, and a discussion about the possibilities of art and peace.
The play brings the H.E.A.T Collective's mission of education and activism to the downtown New York audience and engages the community with the post-show event/discussion. Please consider donating to bring this piece to life!
