TAHA - an uplifting story of hope in times of turmoil

More than a play, TAHA is a catalyst for connection. 

TAHA offers a deeply personal and uplifting story of hope in times of turmoil. 

From the joys of a peaceful childhood to the heartbreak of displacement, the play allows us to empathise with Taha’s resilience and spirit that endures even in the face of loss and adversity.

One of the leading theatre directors in the Middle East.

The play is directed by Amir Nizar Zuabi, a Jewish Palestinian. He is known for the Little Amal project, an internationally celebrated 12-foot-tall puppet.

Little Amal represents a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl traveling across the world. Her journey carries a message of hope and compassion for displaced people everywhere.
