48 Minutes for Palestine, my collaboration with Ashtar Theatre is coming soon to Rich Mix Theatre on September 7th and 8th! Contact Rich Mix for bookings. The eminent theatre director saw 48 Minutes for Palestine and said:
‘it’s an amazing, magnificent piece of work. In fact, it is all of a piece, as there is no way of separating conception, visualisation, staging, performing – and meaning. If there is any very positive and hopeful message, as some of the audience in the discussion were looking for – it is there in the fact that your work is an affirmation that unity – even for 48 minutes and encompassing the spectators – is real’. Peter Brook.
The show has played all over the world including Brazil, Jordan, Palestine, South Africa, Spain and across Sweden…
