THE ARCHER FROM MALIS
APRIL / MAY, 2016


JULIUS CAESAR - 2012

JULIUS CAESAR - 2012
"...a delightful re-telling of Sophocles' Philoctetes..."


"... really good actors do it by their simple, complete presence. El-Amin's casting is terrific."


"...a superb Regan Linton, a performer unconstrained by her wheel-chair - actually somehow freed into great physicality..."


"...with The Archer from Malis, Griot under the direction of El-Amin directly harmonizes and heals."

El-Amin.  Both plays included engaging talkbacks with the audience and performances by accomplished diverse artists.
