Bahr None Productions and Outpost13 present:
Directed by Jessica Hanna
3 pm PST/ 6 pm EST
Following the cancellation of the NYC premiere due to Covid, Iris has partnered with Outpost 13 and her director Jessica Hanna to bring DAI to the public via a one of a kind streaming event.
Join us for the powerful sequel to her funny and moving solo show, DAI (enough), in which she portrayed 10 different characters in a Tel Aviv cafe moments before a suicide bomber enters. DAI had a hit run Off Broadway, and a tour across the US, Canada, Europe and Latin America, including a command performance at the United Nations for over 100 ambassadors and delegates.
DAI 2.0, follows up with the aftermath of the bombing fifteen years later, as a reporter who survived the original bombing returns to interview a wide range of family members of the victims. With humor and pathos, the show explores the current state of the conflict and Israeli society: both its lovers and its critics, through the current prism of Covid and isolation.
For questions and to inquire about group rates and talkbacks with the performer:
