The Lark Timeline

We Swim, We Talk, We Go to War

By Mona Mansour

Directed by Evren Odcikin

While trying to navigate the currents of the Pacific, an Arab-American woman and her nephew, who has enlisted in the military, dive into the murky waters of family, identity, and politics. Adventurous and playful, We Swim takes the form of a literal conversation on stage, and expands into a nuanced dialogue about what it means to be American, Arab, and Arab-American at our current moment in time.

A commission of The Lark, Golden Thread, and Silk Road Rising's MEA Initiative.
