The Gaza Monologues
The Belgian cultural sector – individual artists, art workers and institutions – is responding to ASHTAR Theatre’s urgent and worldwide appeal to publicly read or perform the Gaza Monologues on
Wednesday, 29 November 2023, the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
The play was created in 2010 and consists of 31 monologues by children and young people recounting what happened to them during the war in Gaza in 2008 and 2009. Tragically, these monologues are still relevant today. They highlight the horrors, hopes, and resilience of the courageous people in Palestine, lifting up the voices of children and people in Gaza.
This multi-voiced and collective solidarity action for the Palestinian people is an initiative that started spontaneously throughout the cultural field and is still growing every day
Overview readings and performances
