How to Have Fun in a Civil War (Theatre)

Somalia, USA
2018,55 min

Live Theater Performance

A one-woman show by Somali multimedia artist Ifrah Mansour.

Minnesota-based Somali playwright and performer Ifrah Mansour revisits her childhood memories during the 1991 Somali civil war to confront violent history with humor, and provide a voice for the global refugee stories of children. How to Have Fun in a Civil War, is a one-act multimedia play, which explores war from an idyllic viewpoint of a seven-year-old Somali refugee girl. The play weaves puppetry, poetry, videos and multiple oral stories taken from community interviews to tell a captivating story about resilience while pushing the audience to engage in a healing process that is still raw for survivors of the war. (Appropriate for ages 6 and up.)

Tickets on a sliding scale from $0-$30.  Reserve your seat.

In partnership with Boom Arts.
