Abdelkader Alloula

This season, La MaMa welcomes the Algerian company, Istijmam and their production of Et'teffeh/Apples by Abdelkader Alloula.

 Jane E. Goodman, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Indiana University, writes:

"Playwright Abdelkader Alloula wrote Et’tefeh in 1992, in the aftermath of Algeria’s 1988 uprising, which toppled 30 years of single-party dictatorship but led to a decade of civil war that pitted Islamist insurgents against a military-backed regime. A secular democratic intellectual committed to political pluralism, Alloula was assassinated outside his home in Oran by Islamist terrorists in 1994."

Abdelkader Alloula's daughter, Rihab Alloula is performing in the play along with Moussa Boukra and Mustapha Lakhdari.  La MaMa is the New York stop on this multi-city tour of Et'teffeh/Apples that runs through October 2, 2016.
