About the event

In colaboration with Palestinian theater group Ashtar Theater

Thirty-three young people from Gaza believed after the first war on the Gaza strip 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.”

The Gaza Monologues are the testimonies of these youths from Gaza, rewritten for the stage back in 2010, by Ashtar theatre youth in Ramallah, in the West Bank. Tragically, these Monologues are still accurate today. They are highlighting the horrors, hopes and resilience of the courageous Gazans to a wider audience, bringing out the voices of children and people in Gaza.

Since October 2010 to date, more than 2000 youth from around the Globe in more than 80 cities in 40 countries have presented the monologues that are translated and presented into 18 languages.
