Heather Raffo’s 9 PARTS OF DESIRE

October 30, 2008

Mo`olelo’s Artistic Director, Seema Sueko, is the 2008-2009 Artist-in-Residence at the Thurgood Marshall College at UCSD. As part of the College’s Human Rights and Global Citizenship Symposium, she will present a staged reading of Heather Raffo’s one-woman play 9 PARTS OF DESIRE. The reading is free but reservations are required. Details about the symposium can be found at http://provost.ucsd.edu/humanrights

A portrait of the extraordinary (and ordinary) lives of a whole cross-section of Iraqi women:
A sexy painter, a radical Communist, doctors, exiles, wives and lovers. This work delves into the many conflicting aspects of what it means to be a woman in the age-old war zone that is Iraq. An unusually timely meditation on the ancient, the modern and the feminine in a country overshadowed by war.

Staged reading featuring Seema Sueko
Directed by Janet Hayatshahi
