ABOUT SEAMSTRESS

Seamstress is a multimedia documentary opera based on oral history interviews I conducted with Palestinian women from different generations and social sectors in occupied Palestine (The West Bank and Gaza) from the summer of 2012 through the winter of 2017. Blending audio interviews, photography, raw and archival footage with live chamber orchestra and dance performances, Seamstress aims to create a moving and powerful portrait of love, strength, and resistance in the face of injustice and misinformation. Seamstress was awarded a Discovery Grant for Female Composers of Opera from the National Opera Center of America in 2019. Jarrar is currently working on its sister opera, Butcher.
