The Aeneid
Performance The Aeneid — NYUAD Theater Program, World Premiere

Open to the Public


Time 8:00pm

Location Black Box, The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi

Olivier Kemeid’s version of Virgil’s classic tale migrates Aeneas’s search for a homeland into the modern world of Middle East revolution.

Under the helm of celebrated American director Sarah Cameron Sunde, a cast of NYU Abu Dhabi students brings to life the rhythmic prose of Egyptian-Canadian playwright Olivier Kemeid, translated by Judith Miller, who captures the anxiety, danger, and shaky fellowship of the refugee experience.
