Performance Notes

The English-language premiere of a story inspired by the headlines, a world away.
On Friday December 17, 2010, a fruit vendor named Mohamed Bouazizi ignites a fire that will burn its way across the Arab world.
A fictional account written by Stéphane Brulotte places Karim, a forensic pathologist, tasked with performing an autopsy on his body as protests erupt throughout Tunisia, and eventually throughout the Middle East. Charged with clearing the Tunisian government of any blame in his death, the doctor must reconcile his own safety, the future of his country, and the dignity of a young man that sparked the Arab Spring.
