CULTURE FEST: They Call me Q, – live performance

March 28, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

Starring Qurrat Ann Kadwani: This is the story of a girl from Bombay growing up in the Boogie Down Bronx who gracefully seeks balance between the cultural pressures brought forth by her traditional parents and wanting acceptance into her new culture. Along the journey, Qurrat Ann Kadwani (Q) transforms into 13 characters that have shaped her life including her parents, Caucasian teachers, Puerto Rican classmates, and African-American friends. Laden with heart and abundant humor, THEY CALL ME Q speaks to the universal search for identity experienced by immigrants of all nationalities.

Under the direction of Obaid Kadwani and Claudia Gaspar, and developed with Ellery Schaar, THEY CALL ME Q played Off Broadway in 2014 for 7 months at St. Luke’s Theatre in NYC, making Ms. Kadwani the first South Asian female to achieve this accomplishment. She has been interviewed on Fox News, Fox 5 NY, News 12 Bronx and has been labeled “a woman who shapes the future.” To date, she has performed her solo play over 100 times.
