THERE IS A FIELD is a play about Aseel Asleh, a 17-year old Palestinian citizen of Israel killed by police in October 2000. Based on interviews and primary sources collected over 15 years, the play offers a uniquely personal lens for understanding inequality as the root of state violence and impunity. The St Louis community will find particular resonance with themes raised by Aseel’s life and murder. We hope that this performance will create space to further explore connections and build solidarity across universal struggles for liberation and equality.
