We are currently working on our first production, “Shira and Amal”, addressing the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. “Shira and Amal” tells the story of an Israeli girl from West Jerusalem and a Palestinian Girl from East Jerusalem, who, after being traumatized by the deaths of their older brothers, escape into the world of music. Years later their paths cross when they are accepted to the prestigious Ivory University. Under the mentorship of their beloved Professor, they embark on a quest to bring peace to their conflict-ridden homeland, composing a duet to perform for all of Jerusalem to hear.
