Navigating the Tensions Between Tradition and Modernity in the 21st Century
In scenes from her critically acclaimed one-woman show, Pakistani-British-American playwright Nadia Manzoor uses poignant personal stories to shatter the illusion that there is security in family tradition. Uplifting and empowering, she shares her journey to self-fulfillment as an independent woman. Nadia is joined by author and activist Irshad Manji and financier Riaz Siddiqi in an interactive panel. Together, they explore how the issues faced by the playwright symbolize the misunderstandings and tensions between the US and Pakistan, a key programmatic emphasis of Intersections International.
