Snapshots 2.0 is the latest evolution this digitally designed production from Convergence Theatre. This new and innovative dramatic text, written by company member Asif Majid and directed by Nikoo Mamdoohi, examines the intersection of Muslim and LGBTQ identities in an effort to foster open and supportive dialogue in these communities. Framed as a series of interactions between couples, Snapshots delves into the struggles to embrace and communicate the multiple identities one can hold. This performance features Bakht Arif, Fabiolla da Silva, Arjun Dhwan, and Axandre Oge.
Snapshots will be broadcast live on FRIDAY JUNE 12TH at 7 PM EDT on Howlround TV and on SATURDAY JUNE 13TH at 2PM EDT on Convergence Theatre’s Facebook page.
