KENOSHA, Wis. -The Performing Arts Series kicks off its 2019-20 season with a one woman show written and performed by Qurrat Ann Kadwani, Intrusion. The performance will take place at Carthage College on Tuesday, September 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Wartburg Theatre in the David A. Straz, Jr. Center and will conclude with a talkback with the artist.

Intrusion presents a captivating and poignant story about sexual violence in all facets. Set twenty years in the future, a future where there have been no reported incidents of sexual violence in over a decade, one woman comes forward and begins a movement to prevent and raise awareness about domestic issues in our society. The play features eight characters (all portrayed by the multitalented Kadwani): a psychologist, the prosecutor, a politician, an impassioned college student, a third grader, a day trader who recounts his experience with sexual assault, a journalist, and a professor. Each of these characters contributes their own perspectives, providing audiences a holistic view of the issue intended to entertain, teach, and spark discussion about domestic violence.

Qurrat Ann Kadwani is an award-winning actor, producer, and philanthropist. Her other one-woman play, They Call Me Q, earned her awards for Best Actress, Best Play, NYS Assemblyman, Bronx Borough President, Trailblazer from SAIPAF, Cultural from AAPICC, Dream from SAPNA, and also cemented her place in history as the first South Asian woman to have a play produced off-Broadway. Kadwani is the founding artistic director of eyeBLINK, a nonprofit performing arts organization committed to multicultural performances and social change, and teaches classes on Solo Play Creation, Monologue Writing and Performance, Monologue Preparation, Audition Preparation, and Acting Business Plan. She also organizes an annual philanthropic event, “A Slice of Hope”, an annual Echoes Of Love: Suicide Prevention Fundraiser with music, and aids numerous nonprofit organizations with fundraising events.
