Meetings Around Children's Theater

Be part of “Meetings Around Children’s Theater”

Discover new plays and participate in panels and discussions

It’s happening on November 2-3 at the Sunflower Theater – Tayyouneh

“Meetings Around Children’s Theater” is a 2-day platform putting the accent on the Children’s Theater and featuring 4 exciting new plays, as well as panels and discussions with professionals in Media, Education and Theater.

The platform will take place at the Sunflower Theater and will launch the performance phase of KHAYAL’s Magic Box - Soundouk El Ferje initiative to encourage more young Lebanese artists to get creatively involved in Children’s Theater. 

The platform’s inauguration will be held in the presence of HE Ambassador Angelina Eichhorst, Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Lebanon, on November 2, at 7:00 p.m. and will feature the premiere of “Le Bal des Rêves” (Ball of Dreams). 

“Le Bal des Rêves” is a joint Lebanese-French production by KHAYAL and Subito Presto about the power of dreams to unite people and reveal new horizons, especially in a society stagnated by new entertainment technologies. The play will be staged until November 20 (All audiences starting 8 years old, in French with some Arabic dialogs).
