The Diary of a Mulberry Tree
Red Oak initiated “Red Oak Performing Troupe” which aims to empower the youth through interactive theater, dance and music. It uses performance practices as an instrument of social change and encourages self-confidence, self-expression, and physical challenges.
Residency at Hammana Artist House:
Red Oak Performing Troupe artists made a residency at Hammana Artist House in Sept. 2018 and gave a performance workshop to children and youth from the village of Hammana and the region. Children and youth were invited to share the stage with amazing choreographer and dancer Jean-Paul Mehansio, and dancers/actresses Rouaida al Ghali and Dana Mikhael in Nadine Abou Zaki’s dance theatre performance "The Diary of a Mulberry Tree".
Raising awareness about environmental issues
The performance aims to raise awareness about environmental issues, and encourage a new generation to rethink the environment in today’s digital age. It is also an invitation for men to break their prejudices and the artificial boundaries they created to maintain a continuous state of conflict and war and to go beyond resentment, by recognizing and respecting their differences.
