The Vendor of Wisdom

Directed by Ihab Zahda

 

 

About the play:

The vendor of the Wisdom is an enlightening, social  play. It has many educational objectives that are beneficial in life. Through this play participants could make an educational theatrical work by the usage of  classical Arabic scripts. This has a great influence of building their capacity and  improving their linguistic skills.

“justice is a word, honesty is a word, where also the secret of happiness is the words: “don’t do anything without knowing its consequences”.  That proverb which the poor  Abdollah (a cupping physician) purchased with 5 gold dinars from a sagacious came one day to the city… Abdollah thought that he mistook when he did so. He didn’t know what goodness  was behind this proverb.

 “Yes, a proverb is nothing but words, though it could avoid you troubles”.. this is what the wise man said and this is what happened with Abdollah (the cupping physician) when he remembered this proverb. He could heal the king from a disease that doctors were unable to treat. Consequently, it was the reason to enrich him  and preciously estimate his efforts; bringing  happiness for him and his family.

Wafaa Alamleh: Theatre is another space for someone to think deeply and be creative.

 

Participants

Basil Altartoury: Theatre enhanced my self confidence.

Raghad Naser Aldeen: Theatre made me discover  another side of my personality that I was ignorant about.

Refka Naser Aldeen: I love myself when I present in the theatre as I can do something that I like.

Aydah Jamal Alhojooj: Through theatre I could get rid of tension and shame in anything I do.  

Rana Naser Aldeen: Theatre taught me to cooperate with others and enhanced my self confidence.

Reem Naser Aldeen: Theatre is my second home and the place where I feel  happy the most.

Danya Naser Aldeen: Theatre gave me a great opportunity to discover many talents that I got.

Mohammad Naser Aldeen: I could improve myself, I became more accurate and skillful in doing things.

Ahmad Naser Aldeen: Theatre helped me to organize my time In addition to the improvements in my life concerns.

Yasmin Alzughayir: Theatre is another world that I find myself in, and not just a place.

Gaza-Hebron-Gaza

Directed by Raed Shyoukhi

 

 

 

About the play :

Here in Hebron we have been able to hear the piercing shrieks of Gaza children who lived the war with all its painful details. We refused to see their voices die in the road… we have heard them… we tried to understand the pain that echoes in these voices. Therefore, we turned their voices into a play. Hopefully, by doing so, we pay them back what we owe them. We pay them back with hearts full of strong honest love. We admire how they managed through the pain with their soft hands and innocent eyes… Thus, we created this work Gaza – Hebron - Gaza… Our apologies if we disappointed them.

About the Play

When FEAR personifies itself in the imagination of children,  takes a certain form, turns into a creature that deprives children of sleep, and overwhelms their thinking, and when children innovate ways of eradicating it through their imagination and through their naïve thoughts that might seem silly and eccentric in the eyes of grown-up people, then and only then we come to realize its impact on children and see the obstacles and barriers it creates in their lives. These barriers limit their creativity and ambition. We also realize our weakness in the face of fear as we have never endeavored even to think of how to eradicate it, if not for ourselves, at least for our children. This is an invitation for us to think in the minds of children

In The Village

Directed by Mohammed Titi

 

 

About The Play:

 In the Village is based on The Dragon by the Syrian writer playwright Mohammad Bri Awwani. This work has been adapted by the director Mohammad Titi

When greediness controls the human, he turns into a dragon. In the Village is a play that talks about a small village in which different kinds of people live. In this village there are good people and there are those described as tyrants. This is normal because the world is full of contradictions. The greatest proof of this is the ongoing fight between good and evil.

He Said Yes

Directed by Ihab Zahda

 

 

About the play

(He said yes/ He said no) is a meaningful text that is based on a simple yet a very significant saying that is:  One should think in accordance every new situation that he faces. This saying though is simple creates a conflict and  controversy: There is quite a difference between the world of YES and the world of NO. Sameh is a kid who refuses to leave his ill father alone. He gives up school just to take care of him. In fact, he takes the risk of going through a very difficult and dangerous journey to cure his father. When he was asked a question his answer was “YES” according to the surrounding  norms and traditions. If u were in Sameh’s Place would you have the same answer?!

About the Play:

When six kids leave the places where they live, and discover a new place, and new things, they will pay attention to several differences. For these six kids; in the camp,  they are used to see check points and soldiers everywhere. In addition to narrow and constricted places, where there is no place for playing or for having fun. At this point, they are stuck in between of what they know and what they don’t know.

About the Play:

To all the rich…please look at the way you treat your children. Money is not everything ... Children do not only need money. To sit with your child or play with him for ten minutes is better for him than anything else … Be moderate ... Do not give them way too much or way too little… Kindly watch them… try to understand them… Pay attention to their talents and develop them as long as you can… pay attention to their bad habits and try to change them by talking to them… do not be cruel and do not be soft… be a role model to them… In the name of God Most Merciful Most Beneficent: “If you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you”True are the words of God.

Reem's Dreams

Directed by Ihab Zahda

 

 

 

About the Play:

Dear children and guests … We all have dreams. Every one of us has his or her personal dream. A dream represents what a person wishes for. Most of us strive to achieve their dreams through hard work and perseverance. Some of us, however, do not pay any attention to their dreams. How would life be like if no one had any dream? Could we survive without dreams? This is precisely what we are going to see in Reem’s Dreams. Reem is a little girl who does not know what a dream means and she has never had any sort of dream in her life, not even a little dream.

The will states that she should bring the sun into the palace and if she does not do so she will never be the queen. If she does not complete the mission before the candle flickers out she will be punished.

It is about justice, wisdom and bridging the gap between the authority and the people.

About the Play

Do you know the meaning of freedom? Have ever you found solace and comfort in your life? Do you know how it feels like being imprisoned inside a small lamp, when your life becomes  like a  riddle and your mourning becomes your evening, when the bitterness that goes down your throat makes your life and taste feel all bitter? Would you then accept being a prisoner and a hostage? Stand up and fight, resist and show your disobedience, reject slavery and liberate yourself, change your tears into water to give life to wheat crops, let your anger erupt like a volcano , and make a song out of your anguish. Be free and grow free.

About the Play:

None of us could deny the vital role that technology and scientific progress play in changing our daily lives positively; they helped in saving time, effort, and money, on almost all different levels. However, just as anything else, it has advantages and disadvantages.  The inventions that we see and use every day is like a double-edged sword that can protect or even harm us.

One of the most common and important inventions is the internet, it has cause endless changes to our lives. And to be more specific, social media is part and parcel that is widespread, such as facebook. Facebook has caused quite a lot of misfortune, just as it has caused many profits and benefits.

So the puzzle here is whether facebook good or not. And the questions that may occur are; Do you agree on using it or not? How would you use it? Do advise others using it? And why?  All of these questions, and many others will be answered through our play "Facetook".

You are All Welcome.

This Is How We Dream

Directed by Edward Moallem

 

 

 :About the play

“This is How We Dream”…  the dream almost became true until the children realized that running away from their parents and leaving their city is a wrong choice and a bad decision. “This is How We Dream” is a story of six kids, who decide to run away because of their daily life pressure, parents’ demands, intensive study, lack of space, and lack of movement freedom due to several reasons such as the occupation and being controlled by adults.

 

The six kids decide to run away into a city that they thought the city of happiness in which they will have an absolute freedom; however, they fall in the trap of fear because of losing the safety that they used to have with their parents in their cities and their lands. Moving to that city was the beginning of the dangers that they started to face in spite of temptation that they face.

Join us in their trip so we discover what they have found.Credits and Cast

King Sama'an

Directed by Mohammed Titi

 

 

About the Play

In the absence of privacy, people feel like strangers. They cannot express their feelings. They cannot feel comfortable even if they live in big castles. King Sam’an is a play that talks about a king who is spontaneous in the way he expresses his love.

Respect Me Respect You

Directed by Raed Shyoukhi

 

 

 

About the Play:

Respect? What does it mean? What does it mean for you to respect me? What does it mean for me to respect you? What does it mean to respect each other? … I guess, when you are giving me my own space to have my own privacy, then you are respecting me. I suppose that when I’m allowed to wear what I like to wear, listen to the music I love, eat what I like to, and to go the place I want to go to, then I’m respected… When I do not interrupt you while talking, I’m respecting you. When I don’t use your stuff without your permission, I’m respecting you. When I don’t differentiate between you and your sister, and when I don’t talk badly about you behind your back, and and and … In other words; if I don’t respect, I won’t be respected. And for sure, if I do not respect myself, no one will respect me.

And because we respect you, and respect the teachers who are with you, we would like to perform this play for you, and we’ll be glad to listen to your feedbacks. Let’s start.
