Join us for an intimate live performance that moves through multiple spaces exploring real experiences from global voices and the poetry of everyday life. This immersive theatrical experience of innovative multi-media performances results from year-long dialogue and encounters between Georgetown students and youth from Egypt, Syria, Afghanistan, Sudan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Qatar, and Iraq. The Generation (Wh)Y devising ensemble has sparked conversations around the world about the hopes, perspectives, and experiences of the next generation.

Generation (Wh)Y is the third event in Myriad Voices: A Cross-Cultural Performance Festival. Myriad Voices is made possible in part by a grant from the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP); Building Bridges: Campus Community Engagement Grants Program, a component of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art. The festival is also presented in collaboration with the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs, Bridges of Understanding, and the Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies.
