  • "Apples," a play presented by the Algerian theater collective Istijmam

    07:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
    09-09-2016
    Wells-Metz Theater, 275 N. Jordan Ave., Bloomington, Ind.

    Fresh from a performance at The Kennedy Center in Washington, the experimental theater collective Istijmam will bring the play "Apples" to Indiana University Bloomington for one night only. "Apples," or "Et'teffeh," will be presented in English (with some Algerian Arabic) Sept. 9 at the Wells-Metz Theatre. Jane E. Goodman, an associate professor of anthropology at IU Bloomington, arranged for the troupe from Oran, Algeria, to visit the campus as part of its first tour of the United States. The group also will meet with students from IU's Hutton Honors College during their stay. Goodman has been conducting research with Istijmam since 2008 as part of her study of Algerian theater traditions. She also provided a revised translation for the play written by Abdelkader Alloula in the aftermath of Algeria's 1988 uprising. The intimate, gritty drama not only reveals the Algerian past but remains relevant in the current national and global political atmosphere. Free and open to the public, no tickets required
