Project Aim

This project utilized an interactive theatre production for Israeli and Palestinians teenagers in order to significantly alter the conceptions of "the other" by breaking down negative stereotypes. The mixed Palestinian-Israeli cast use techniques such as role-playing, improvisation, humour, dialogue and audience participation to great effect.

How It Works

This project was run across Israeli and Palestinian high schools.
The performance opens with a short introduction of the cast and the story of the collective development of the performance, revealing many of the challenges and trials that characterized its conception. The cast then turn to performances of individual stories, which compel the actors (and the audience) to address their personal stereotypes about 'the other'. The remainder of the performance includes contributions by the audience members. At the conclusion of the show, the cast members sit with the audience and facilitate a discussion. Cast members were specifically trained to deal with different reactions from audiences, serving as a perfect opportunity for audience members to speak to the cast about their unique personal experiences in dealing with the conflict, and the cast's collective journey towards cooperation and partnership.
