    ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

    HKEELEE (TALK TO ME), a one-woman show, is a personal and political exploration of family, memory, and what it means to be(come) American. Attempting to move her Lebanese grandmother who is afflicted with Alzheimers into an assisted living facility in Washington, Leila unpacks a suitcase of belongings and with them, unpredictable waves of memories and stories. Weaving traditional storytelling, solo performance, and direct audience participation, HKEELEE is an interactive exploration of immigration, family, loss, and re-creation - what we hold onto, what we let go, and how those choices come to shape who we are.
