April 16, 2010


Mixed Blood Theater’s newest touring show offers a unique perspective on Islam in 21st Century America.

Hijab Tube will be presented Friday, April 16, at 11 a.m. in Dordt College’s De Witt Gymnasium.

The show features a young American with Muslim ancestry, who takes her questions about Islamic “hijab” head covering to YouTube, drawing a wide range of responses. The presentation shatters stereotypes and clears up misconceptions many have about Muslim culture and traditions.

This 45-minute theatrical production is sponsored by Dordt’s Co-curricular Committee. The performance is free and area residents are encouraged to attend. School groups are also welcome: contact John Kok at 722-6308 for additional information.

Hijab Tube is produced by the Mixed Blood Theatre Company, Minneapolis. Founded in 1976 and dedicated to the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream, Mixed Blood is a multi racial professional company promoting cultural pluralism, individual equality, and artistic excellence.
