From Ashtar Theatre: Thirty-three young people from Gaza believed in 2010, that they have a voice other than the cries of fear and the moans of frustration. A voice that can rise higher than the drones of war and the planes that bombarded them day and night. A voice that says: “Enough!!! We deserve a world better than this, a world without fear, siege or occupation.”
ASHTAR changed the script, replaced the events, and converted the tragic epic to a theatre of action, a theatre built on interaction for the sake of change, arising from our belief that freeing the land begins by freeing the mind.
Join us this Saturday at 7:30 PM at the University Heights Center Auditorium for a truly unique event: a multilingual reading of "The Gaza Monologues" by Ashtar Theatre presented in collaboration with eSe Teatro, Yun Theatre, and Dunya Productions.
Experience these powerful stories in English, Arabic, Spanish, and Chinese, as we stand in solidarity with the people in Gaza. Be part of this special evening where diverse voices unite to tell stories that resonate with us all.
Door open at 7:00 PM.. Show starts at 7:30 PM . There will be a talkback afterwards with the team.
