Action for Hope gladly announces the last round of “Rouge” storytelling performances in Dar El-Nimer, Beirut on July 27 and 28 at 7:00 PM.
‘Rouge’ is a performance by a group of Syrian women refugees who have fled Syria during the war to seek refuge in Bekaa. The performance includes stories inspired by the women’s experiences and daily life events. The stories are written and performed by the women and directed by Sara Zein.
The 8 participants were among a group of 87 women that took part in literacy training organized by Action for Hope in 2015. Afterwards, 27 of them took part in a creative writing training program led by the playwright Eman Said in 2016. In 2017, they took part in a theater training, to further develop their creative skills, which led to this performance.
This performance of “Rouge” is a developed version of the first performance that took place in Beirut during Awan festival in 2017. The storytelling show will be performed again in Beirut and Tripoli in summer 2018 as part of “Rouge” tour in Lebanon.
