Free Ali!

a FUNDRAISING EVENT to aid in the fight to free ALI GHARAVI

Friday, September 22, 2017 — 7 pm
Free admission

Music, food, camaraderie, a reading of Ali’s newly published story “Flight,” and more!

Ali Gharavi is a writer, playwright and former Director of Technology at the Center for Victims of Torture.  You may remember Table Salt’s 2010 Production of Spring of Freedom, Summer of Fear.  Ali wrote that play based on his personal experience as a child during the Iranian revolution.  Ali moved from Minneapolis to Berlin several years ago, and has been working as a technology consultant to human rights organizations.

On the morning of 5 July 2017, Ali and his colleague Peter Steudtner were facilitating a technology and well-being workshop for members of Amnesty International and several other human rights organizations outside of Istanbul, Turkey, when police entered the room, confiscated all their belongings, and detained them in a local jail.  On July 18th, Ali, Peter, and all participants (including members of Amnesty International) were charged with "aiding a terrorist organization."  They have been held in prison since then.  We’ve organized this event to show solidarity with Ali and to raise funds to cover the costs of those seeking to end Ali's imprisonment.

Featuring the talents of:  Maryam Yusefzadeh, Barbara McAfee, and Tod Petersen; hosted by Edie Lewison, Dennis Curley, and Jim Robinson.

Some comments from Twin Cities reviewers:

The hilarious and touching vignettes span a whole range of experiences ... [there's] something for everyone in this delightful collection of songs and stories!

Brad Richason Examiner.com

I applaud this new company
for producing local,
new work!

Janet Preus HowWasTheShow.com

The nonstop volley of improvisational riffing [produces] enough manic energy and irreverent humor to keep even the most reluctant of minds buzzing with laughter.

Brad Richason City Pages

If you're a fan of John Denver, "Country Roads" is a must-see.... These are faithful interpretations of the songs we know and love, which Dennis sings beautifully!
