Brilliant Mind by Denmo Ibrahim: A Live & Interactive Digital Experience
Join AANM for an exclusive showing of the premiere of Brilliant Mind. Written by AANM artist-in-residence Denmo Ibrahim, Brilliant Mind is an innovative and interactive virtual theatre experience. A limited amount of free tickets are available; act fast to reserve your spot!
When Dina and Yusef learn of their estranged father’s death, they step in and bury a man they never knew. Will brother and sister face their truths once family secrets come to light? Inspired by true stories of first-generation Americans, Brilliant Mind takes a hard look at generational trauma, the struggle between self and family, and the weight of carrying a legacy. It’s an excavation of the politics of gender in immigrant communities and the challenges ever present between tradition and culture. This is a story of hope, of what gets lost in translation, and of what happens when we dare to love unconditionally.
In this extraordinary live and interactive digital experience, explore the family ties that bind and break us, the healing that comes through death, and the acceptance that our parents do the best they can—the rest is up to us.
