The UPSTARTS Festival – celebrating Muslim & Jewish artistic collaboration


Sunday March 2nd, 1pm-8pm
Tricycle Theatre, 269 Kilburn High Rd, Kilburn, NW6 7JR
Box Office: 0207 3281000

A whole day of entertainment including theatre, award-winning films, music, fashion, comedy, video installations, live mural-making, food & spoken word – all showcasing the work of up and coming Muslim & Jewish artists.

“The MUJU UPSTARTS Festival is about bringing us together in mind, spirit and art” (Nick Kent, Director of The Tricycle) and demonstrates that contrary to what the media would have us believe, when you throw Muslims and Jews together, they can be creative and not destructive.

Artists confirmed include: Brother Dash (New York’s favourite Muslim poet).
Comedy from the Edinburgh festival’s only Muslim/Jewish stand-up show,
Prince Abdi (the UK’s first Somali comic) and Joe Bor (winner of comedy factor 2007). Music from diverse Hip-hop collective Emunah. Art work from Aerosol Arabic. Fashion from YES NO MAYBE. Plus the highly anticipated premiere of MUJU’s new theatre production at 3pm.

There’s something for everyone. Other highlights include a discussion with Palestinian and Israeli child psychologists Dr. Danny Brom and Prof. Mohammad Shaheen, and a rare screening of “Knowledge is the Beginning” about Edward Said’s and Daniel Barenboim’s East West Orchestra, plus kids’ activities.
