Camouflage (Play): Camouflage is new dark comedy play written by acclaimed writer Ahmed Masoud. It considers the subject of survival under military occupation and how it is experienced through the eyes of four young Palestinians: a refugee who tries to flee the conflict in Syria, a young girl in Ramallah who is in denial, a boy in Gaza falling in love and an aspiring actor in Haifa who has to come to terms with the unjust society he lives in.
The Shroud Maker: What's the best business one can establish in Gaza? Loosely based on a real life character still residing in Gaza, this play is a dark new satire written and directed by Ahmed Masoud that tells Hajja Souad's story. She's survived decades of wars, deportation and oppression through making and selling shrouds for the dead, profiting from the continuous Israeli attacks. The 51-day Israeli war on Gaza in summer 2014 proves highly lucrative for Hajja, until her past returns to haunt her and forcing her to make a momentous decision.
The 51 Day War, Gaza A Year On: It is a year since the Israeli army launched Operation Protective Edge against Gaza, with the air strikes and ground invasion leaving more than 2,000 people dead, approximately 18,000 homes destroyed and at the height of the hostilities 500,000 Palestinians displaced. The scenes from Gaza and the media portrayal of the events had ignited a global debate about the enduring conflict; but, a year has passed and the media spotlight has moved on and the people left to rebuild their lives with over 100,000 still displaced.
Gaza: Photography, Videos and Drawing: At the P21 Gallery, Gaza is a group exhibition of works aiming to shed light on life in the Gaza Strip; and, accompanied by evenings of film screenings, conversation, debates and spoken words, it will indulge the viewers and participants on stories of the reality of life in an open prison.
