I am a theatre director from London working on a play about the movement for peace in Israel and Palestine. I am of Jewish descent, my grandparents were from Austria and Ukraine, both came to the UK after the Nazi invasion and lost most of their family in the Holocaust. This personal history has given me a strong interest in human rights and justice. I have worked for 3 years for Peace Direct an NGO that supports grassroots peacebuilders in areas of conflict. I spent six months in Israel Palestine in 2010 directing short films showcasing the work of local peace activists and ma now developing these stories into a theatre production to be stage next year. http://www.insightonconflict.org/conflicts/israel-palestinian-terri...
Why I want peace:
because it is the only way to live.
Interests and activities:
People, stories, travel, theatre, politics, art, history, everything, and football!
I am currently developing a piece of verbatim theatre and film inspired by Israeli and Palestinian peacebuilders. It is the story of ordinary people on the frontline of conflict who have made an extraordinary choice about how they want to live. Encompassing those on the Gaza/Sderot border, bereaved parents, former resistance fighters and soldiers, conscientious objectors, these are the voices for peace lost within the din of conflict. I am travelling back to the region in September/October and would love to hear from anyone open to sharing their story and experiences.
