We have decided to postpone our trip to Palestine. We are not canceling. We are very passionate about this project and we will find future dates for Shakespeare For A New World: The Palestinian Voice to go forward. All of the funds that have been raised (minus the fees for moving our plane tickets) have been put aside in a special bank fund and we will continue to apply for grants and contacting foundations. Our hopes are to expand the project to include more artists both here in New York and in Ramallah.
Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out to us with your support, love, thoughts, prayers and concerns. We have been in contact with the Academy students and administration, everyone is doing fine, and they are still just as excited about this project as we are. Their passion and enthusiasm gives us hope!
We believe in this project and the power that it holds, and we plan on going forward to create theatre with an incredible group of artists.
Please keep them in your thoughts.
And again, thank you. We wouldn’t be here without you.
