Maya Youssef qanun
The Seven Gates of Damascus is an intimate and participatory musical theatre piece for young audiences. The seven stages of the story will unfold in tandem with seven musical themes. The children undergo a challenge at each gate and come to understand that they have the strength and resourcefulness to move on in their quest to find home. The journey is an analogy of the experience that refugee children across the globe have had to find a place of peace.
25 children and their parents will be invited to sit on the stage with Maya. Auditorium seating is also available.
