PERFORMANCE/TALK

Scherazade Goes West

with Fawzia Afzal-Khan with Mustafa Samdani

In this talk, interspersed with bits of live performance, Indian Sufi song and video clips from her work with the experimental performance collective Compagnie Faim de SiecleL (The Hunger of the Century), Fawzia Afzal-Khan draws on her experience/s as a Pakistani/American/Muslim/Wo/Man academic, performance artist, poet and writer, to tease out the complexities of belonging and unbelonging, particularly in the context of a post 9/11 “New World Order,” in order to challenge being “boxed” into any one label or identity.  Come prepared to listen, think, be challenged and to question the speaker/performer.

Fawzia Afzal-Khan has a Phd in English Literature from Tufts University, and is Professor at Montclair State University, NJ. She is author of three books of scholarly criticism, and editor of the best-selling anthology, Shattering the Stereotypes: Mulsim Women Speak Out (a few copies will be available for sale and signing). She is a founding member of Compagnie Faim de Siecle, whose latest work, “Five Streams,” funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and Arts International, had its world premiere at The Asia Society in Manhattan in January 2006.Afzal-Khan is a trained vocalist in the Indo-Pakistani Classical raga tradition, and won All-Pakistan Amateur Vocalist competitions several years in a row in the 1970s. She has written and published a playscript, “Scheherezade Goes West,” published in The Drama Review (TDR), on which this talk/performance is based in part. She is also a published poet, who has won finalist status twice in the Greenburgh Annual Poetry Competition.

This piece has been performed at The Samuel Beckett Hall at Trinity College, Dublin, NYU and the Rethinking Marxism conference at UMass Amherst last year, and will be presented at the Smithsonian in Washington DC later in March 2007.

Fawzia Afzal-Khan is assisted in this presentation by Mustafa Samdani, a recent master’s degree recipient in Performance Studies from Brown University.
