Time: 7:30pm CDT September 10, 2019
Location: Wartburg Theatre
Join us at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 10, in the Wartburg Theatre for “Intrusion,” a one-woman show written and performed by Qurrat Ann Kadwani. A talk back with the artist will immediately follow the show.
“Intrusion” presents a captivating and poignant story about sexual violence in all facets. Set twenty years in the future — a future where there have been no reported incidents of sexual violence in over a decade — one woman comes forward and begins a movement to prevent and raise awareness about domestic issues in our society.
The play features eight characters, all portrayed by the multitalented Kadwani: a psychologist, the prosecutor, a politician, an impassioned college student, a third grader, a day trader who recounts his experience with sexual assault, a journalist, and a professor. Each of these characters contributes his or her own perspectives, providing audiences with a holistic view of the issue intended to entertain, teach, and spark discussion about domestic violence.
Qurrat Ann Kadwani is an award-winning actor, producer, and philanthropist. Her other one-woman play, “They Call Me Q,” earned her awards for Best Actress, Best Play, NYS Assemblyman, Bronx Borough President, Trailblazer from SAIPAF, Cultural from AAPICC, Dream from SAPNA, and also cemented her place in history as the first South Asian woman to have a play produced off-Broadway. Kadwani is the founding artistic director of eyeBLINK, a nonprofit performing arts organization committed to multicultural performances and social change, and teaches classes on solo play creation, monologue writing and performance, monologue preparation, audition preparation, and acting business plan. She also organizes an annual philanthropic event, “A Slice of Hope,” an annual Echoes Of Love: Suicide Prevention Fundraiser with music, and aids numerous nonprofit organizations with fundraising events.
