A staged reading of the collaborative devised theatre project  joining a U.S. team of theatre artists, actors from Pakistan’s Theatre Wallay, and Ithaca College students. Sunday, November 12 and Monday, November 13.


“On Common Ground” is an ongoing project, funded by a grant from the U.S. Embassy, Islamabad, that explores the effects of violence on public space. Since October 2016, U.S. and Pakistani artists have worked together to create an original theatre piece based on Pakistani artists’ experiences and perceptions of public space. U.S. team members Kathleen Mulligan (Ithaca College), David Studwell, and Linda Alper traveled to Islamabad throughout spring 2017 preparing for the first performance of On Common Ground in Islamabad in June. The production then toured to Oregon, performing to capacity audiences at The Artists’ Repertory Theatre (Portland) and The Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

 In the next stage, two actors from Islamabad are spending three weeks in residency in the Department of Theatre Arts at Ithaca College. The actors, along with the U.S. team, are working with Ithaca College students to create additional material on the theme from a U.S. perspective. Some of the scripted material may be included in Theatre Wallay’s tour of On Common Ground throughout Pakistan in spring 2018. The Ithaca College visit will culminate in two performances of a staged reading of material created:

Sunday, November 12 at 6pm in Dillingham Studio 4 (Free- Limited Seating)

Monday, November 13 at 7pm at The Cherry Arts Space, 102 Cherry St, Ithaca. Suggested donation 5.00. All donations benefit The Cherry Arts Space. Reception with artists to follow.
