On 29th June we launched our crowdfunder for At Home in Gaza and London at Toynbee Studios in London, with guests Inua Ellams, Jeremy Hardy, Ahmed Masoud, Miranda Pennell, Larissa Sansour, Juliana Yazbeck and Rafeef Ziadeh, contributing to a great evening of poetry, film, music and comedy, and MH Sarkis who donated a painting to a silent auction.
The money will go towards a month-long workshop from 13 October - 17 November, leading to a full scale production in 2017. We need to bring equipment into Gaza, provide infrastructure such as generators, rent rehearsal space, and pay our participating artists.
This project is all about artistic collaboration. It brings together performers and audiences in utterly different situations to share a common enterprise. Watch the video, help make it happen.
