Az Theatre (London) and Theatre for Everybody (Gaza) are working

on a 10-year collaboration, Gaza Drama Long Term.

The current phase is Gaza Opening Signs, a multi media performance exchange between groups

of deaf and partially hearing young people in Gaza and young people in London who have learning

disabilities. By making an intercultural dialogue and creating exchange through theatre without words,

Gaza Opening Signs will transcend barriers and celebrate diverse forms of expression.


We need to raise £12,000 to make this project happen

If you cannot attend the event please contribute what you can.

Donate online at
