Festival Description

The festival of drama brings together scholars and theatre groups for experimental theatre exchange and to share cultural understanding in the name of peace. The programming includes workshops, lectures, presentations, panels and opportunities for artistic development. The festival is to take place in a large tent where it occupies its own space. The tent serves as the symbolic place of reconciliation and sharing among participants. All the work of the artists is to build peaceful stages where each of the participants share their own experiences. With the workshops and the performances we expect that our people will take the artistic life as a peaceful way to share with others and positively impact their own communities.

In the future we hope that the festival will move to different cities each year with the same format to share with other international communities.
