Hate mail. Death threats. Intimidation. Incarceration, Artists under siege and house arrest. This is happening. Now. This is Shame 2.0 (With Comments From The Populace), a blistering, documentary portrait ripped right from today’s headlines. As Israelis and Palestinians work together in the face of government censorship, cultural suppression, and Loyalty Oaths, we see the costs on embattled artists in a conflict-ridden region unfold onstage. Part of Mosaic Theater’s 18th annual Voices From A Changing Middle East Festival, Shame 2.0 integrates live readings of actual Facebook messages, tweets, and voicemails to punctuate the raw, true story of Einat Weizman and Morad Hassan as they strive to make art a tool for cultural resistance, facing obstacles from a crusading Cultural Minister who has come to Washington to disrupt their testimony. It is a gripping snapshot of now, written in realtime.
