Join us to welcome Al-Rowwad Palestinian Children’s Theater to New York! Headquartered in Aida Refugee Camp, Al-Rowwad Children’s Theater is a unique project that supports and emphasizes the creativity of Palestinian refugee youth. Al-Rowwad Center is a home for the cultural, artistic and theatrical training of children and youth, housing a computer center, a debke program, a children’s theater program, an art program, and much more. Lauded in “American Theater” magazine, and visited by some of the U.S.’s leading playwrights, Al-Rowwad is an inspiring home of children’s creativity and expression amid war and occupation, and an illustration of the resourcefulness of the refugee youth who continue to struggle for return and liberation, across generations.
See Al-Rowwad website for details: //alrowwad.virtualactivism.net/
In June 2005, Al-Rowwad Children’s Theater will be touring the U.S., beginning their tour in the New York City area, and then traveling to Connecticut, Vermont, and Kentucky.
Diverse organizers and activists from New York and New Jersey’s theater community and Palestine activist community have joined together to raise funds to bring Al-Rowwad on this U.S. tour, and to our community. They will be performing in the New York area from June 18-22.
Join us in welcoming them on June 22!
