EH DAH ? QUESTIONS FOR MY FATHER

AYa.jpg

This year's runaway hit at the New York Musical Festival is Hypokrit's own production, Eh Dah. It tells the story of “Ghetto-Hippie-Arab-Commie-China Doll” Aya Aziz, who was shaped by the eclectic community of New York City. Aya’s father, an Egyptian-American world-traveler, remained a mystery, as did her Muslim family. In this award-winning solo musical, Aya enacts the world she came from and the family she went in search of. With a range of accents, voices, and zany characters, Aya’s story deals with contemporary conflicts – identity, the culture war, Islamophobia, all while asking Eh Dah – what is this?!
