The Peacock of Silwan‬‎

Play by Alma Ganihar
Directed by Chen Alon & Sinai Petter

Three thousand years since the Kingdom of David sat in the village of Silwan, a group of artists–Jewish and Arab, Israeli and Palestinian–tell various stories about its past.

The idea to create a play as a vehicle to witness the dangers facing family and community life in Silwan and to galvanize the public originated from the work of Judy Roth, PhD.
