FROM PALESTINE TO PEÑASCO – THE GAZA MONO-LOGUES:
AN ADAPTATION IN 5 VOICES TELLS STORIES OF PALESTINIAN YOUTH LIVING UNDER OCCUPATION
“The sound of life is louder than the roar of bombing and higher than the will of destruction and isolation, the Gaza Mono-Logues are a living expression of hope in the face of pain…….” – Iman Aoun, Artistic Director, The Gaza Mono-Logues, Ashtar Theatre – Ramallah 2010
The Peñasco Theatre Collective (PTC) www.penascotheatre.org, a multi-ethnic, interdisciplinary and intergenerational artist collective in Northern New Mexico, is proud to present its newest production The Gaza Mono-Logues: An Adaptation in 5 Voices!
The Gaza Mono-Logues: An Adaptation in 5 Voices is a bold, innovative production that incorporates dance, acrobatics, dramaturgy, and visual art and accompanied by a compelling original score, an inter-generational cast of Indigenous artists and artists of color gracefully articulate poignant observations by young people living under siege. The monologues authored in 2010 by teenagers living in Gaza working in collaboration with the Gaza-and Ramallah-based Ashtar Theatre, position hopes, dreams, and resiliencies of young Palestinians at the center of the realities of Israeli occupation and war.
“Daring to imagine a future that includes Palestinians’ dreams in a present seeking to erase them is a powerful reminder of the resilient nature of tender hearts and that creative expression and performance can be a force for healing, transformation and re-humanization.” – Rebekah Tarín, production’s director
Performance preview Sunday September 18, 2016 @ The AHA Festival – Santa Fe Railyard 1pm-8pm
