ABOUT THE PLAY

Five friends secretly convene in the middle of the night to act out the tragic tale of Julius Caesar. They soon become swept away as their own prejudices and personal vendettas begin to parallel the lives of the characters in distant Rome. Alliances and rivalries are turned upside down when the fun of play-acting takes a serious turn as Shakespeare’s poignant drama begins to hit home.

Five actors with no set, no costume changes, and only candlelight bring the essence of this classic play vividly alive with the sheer theatricality of this all too timely story.

Dave has a magic way of making you feel like an old friend with songs that are original and intimate. He is a master guitarist who plays his own intricate Flamenco influences finger-style music with laid back island feel.
– NPR

Dave Feder has carved out a niche of his own, playing a signature blend of Flamenco-infused Folk music. His laid back style easily disguises the complexity of his blazingly deft finger picking. Three decades of island-living in the Florida Keys has influenced Feder’s breezy, approachable, and sophisticated music.. His musicianship incorporates miles of style, (savvy yet innocent, intelligent yet accessible) woven into a personal journey telling stories about life through the strings of his guitar.

Feder has been praised by NPR’s All Songs Considered, World Café Live, PBS Art Loft, NPR’s Folk & Acoustic Music, The Miami Herald and Time Out magazine among others. Feder spent six weeks at the top of the Broadjam World Music Chart with his critically acclaimed album “Black Emerald” and has been featured on All My Children (ABC), Art Loft (PBS), the NBC Good Morning show, National Park Service Educational Videos, and Florida Everglades Documentaries. Feder is a founding member ICE — a 501C3—that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships for students pursuing arts, music and dance. As a champion of the local arts world in the Keys, Feder produces the Florida Keys Bay Jam, a music festival that raises money for local high School Arts and Music Grants. Bay Jam is celebrating its 23rd year. Event on Facebook.

September 15: Women in Black presents WALLS: A Play for Palestine

7:30 PM
Advance tickets available here.

About the Play
WALLS: A Play for Palestine returns to Knoxville as part of the 15th anniversary celebration of the Knoxville Area Women in Black. WALLS premiered at the Clarence Brown Lab Theatre in January 2016 before going on to production at the 2016 New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC). The play has been favorably reviewed by “Theatre is Easy” and “CurtainUp.” WALLS was a finalist for the Henley Rose Playwright Competition for Women and earned the playwright the 2016 Artist of Change Award from Community Shares Tennessee.

WALLS, based on the playwright’s life, tells the story of a teenager’s complex relationship with her traditional Muslim father and her struggle to reconcile her Palestinian roots with her East Tennessee upbringing. Although Diaspora Child clashes with her father over dating, prom, and clothing, she yearns to connect with her heritage on her own terms. As Diaspora Child reads history textbooks and learns Arabic, Mother Palestine appears to tell the story of her traumatic history. WALLS explores the issues of immigration and diaspora, parent-child relationships, and the often forgotten history of the Palestinian people.

About the Sponsor
Women in Black is an international movement started by Israeli women in 1988 to protest Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. In Knoxville, we have held Women in Black vigils every Tuesday for 15 years – standing in the heat, cold, rain, and snow, as well as all the beautiful weather! We stand in solidarity with our Israeli sisters who have been speaking out for decades against Israel’s illegal occupation of the Palestinian territories. We express our concern for a just peace between Israel and Palestine and ask our government to use its power and influence to end Israel’s illegal occupation.

About the Playwright
Summer Ghasan Awad (playwright and “Diaspora Child”) is a Knoxville native and an alumna of the University of Tennessee. WALLS began as her senior thesis project in the College Scholars Program, for which she designed her own major in Literary Activism. The playwright currently serves as the Intensive Case Manager for Bridge Refugee Services and continues to be involved in the Knoxville slam poetry and indie theatre community.
