WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Haroon, an ordinary illegal immigrant from Bangladesh, dies in Astoria. His death creates a lot of controversies -- some say it's a normal death, some say he has committed suicide, and others say he died from Ichssa Mrittu, Bangla for "withdrawal from life". With music and movement, Ichssa Mrittu depicts the life and reality of every immigrant in this country. Written and directed by Tauquir Ahmed. There will be no performance Friday 12/06.
