Ping Chong


Ping Chong + Company is partnering with the Arab American National Museum to present Undesirable Elements:Dearborn, an interview-based theater production for AANM’s Global Fridays series with local participants, exploring the diverse experiences and histories of Dearborn’s Arab American Muslim population.

We will conduct extensive interviews with residents who identify as Arab American individuals, age 18 and up. We are looking for stories that reflect a wide range of Dearborn experiences, be it as part of family history, your hometown, business location, or current place of residence. Interviews will take place approximately between February 24 and March 4. If you are chosen for an interview, we will contact you and do our best to work with your schedule.
