EVE is a collaborative performance poetry project which deconstructs John Milton’s Paradise Lost—and the Eve and Adam myth more broadly—through the lens of Palestinian liberation. EVE queers, shatters, reimagines and stitches together several timelines: from Milton’s life to the many existential and lonely spaces of Palestinian diaspora, to space-times before Edenic origin stories. At a juncture where Ars Poetica meets myth, EVE returns to these pasts so that they may be a futurism that lives and breathes through us all.

This event will consist of a work-in-progress reading of a revised version of the performance. Artists-in-residence George Abraham and Fargo Tbakhi will share a reading of the work, followed by a feedback session with audience and community members, facilitated by Fargo.
