From Pittsburgh to Beirut: An Evening of Literary ConnectionsWednesday, June 9, 2021 @ 7:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M.
This is a virtual-only event streamed on City of Asylum’s virtual platform, City of Asylum @ Home.
Join us for a Pittsburgh-meets-Beirut event that not only brings these two fated cities together, but is also a celebration of music, literature, and paper.
This program features Rusted Radishes, the Literary & Arts Journal of Beirut, as well as Pittsburgh partners RealTime Interventions. Organized to support Rusted Radishes and spotlight RealTime Intervention’s upcoming virtual show The Birth of Paper (posttheatrical.org/the-birth-of-paper), a piece performed live from Beirut centering on the mutual transmission of goods and goodwill between our two cities.
Featuring readings, spells, melodies, literature, and paper arts, this is an evening not to be missed.
Artists and performances from Pittsburgh and Beirut, including Celeste Gainey, Crystal Woodling, Nur Turkmani, Patricia Ward, Milia Ayache, and Rima Rantisi.
