Blending dynamic theater and original songs, Sunrise at Midnight is a rare glimpse into the rich Kabyle Folktale tradition from Algeria, virtually unknown in the United States. A flute that possesses the power to upend life as we know it; a sexy cautionary tale for young men looking to marry too soon; a chilling sacrifice a leader must make interweave to create an electrifying play of lust, wit and adventure.

Directed by Ryan Underbakke, music by Aaron Gabriel, created and performed by Heather Bunch, Taous Claire Khazem, Theo Langason, Nora Montanez and Mohammed Yabdri.
