STANDING for HUMANITY in GAZA and ISRAEL

February 21 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm MST

A special event to raise awareness and offer pathways to staying informed, engaged, and active. The event will include a staged reading of:
HOW TO REMAIN A HUMANIST AFTER A MASSACER IN 17 STEPS A play by Maya Arad Yasur, Translated by Shir Freibach.

The haunting 20-minute play opens with a prologue set on the morning of October 7th, ’23. It then sharply transforms to a ‘how to’ course in maintaining humanity in the aftermath of barbarism, poignantly capturing the critical moment when everything changed for the people of Israel, Gaza, and way beyond. It sets the stage for crucial conversations about the world’s most combustible conflict and enforces that essential reminder — ‘There are mothers on both sides.’

The play has been presented broadly in Europe and Israel, generating profoundly emotional response. Ami Dayan directs a cast featuring Wendy Ishii, Tamara Meneghini, Lisa Bornstein, and Mari Brown.

The event will include poetry by prominent Palestinian writers: Taha Muhammad Ali, Rashid Hussein, Mahmud Darwish (considered the Palestinian National Poet) and Refaat Alareer, who died in an IDF airstrike on Dec 6′ two weeks after writing his now famous world wide poem If I Must Die.

and a Facilitated Panel Discussion with local journalists, educators, and political and faith leaders, and the audience.
