The Impossible Dream?”
Du-Drama Festival 2010
Habima National Theatre Hosts Peace Child Israel
July 5, 2010 17:30 * Arison Theatre, Tel Aviv
On a backdrop of racism and growing violence among youth , 100 Arab and Jewish actors from around the nation will be hosted by the Habima National Theatre at the Arison Theatre on July 5th for an evening of scenes from the plays they have been performing in schools all around the country for over 10,000 Arab and Jewish students since March.
The show includes scenes that are “the best of” Peace Child Israel’s 22nd season and are performed by “the best of” Arab and Jewish youth, who are looking for a better shared society for themselves and the future generations. An impossible dream? The actors in Peace Child Israel’s “Du-Drama” leadership program are dreamers. They go against the tide in a stubborn effort to keep channels open – despite the stigma and boos - between the Arab and Jewish communities in Israel and using the power of theatre to do it.
