Nationally acclaimed storyteller Noa Baum will present her one-woman show, “A Land Twice Promised” on Thursday, March 15, at 8 p.m. in Kirby Learning Center’s ICEBOX Theatre.
Her show illuminates the common ground and human condition behind the politics of the Middle East. Baum takes the audience behind the rhetoric and headlines to hear the true stories of four women, two Israelis and two Palestinians. In the process, she shows the most precious ingredient for the resolution of any major conflict: mutual compassion.
Born and raised in Jerusalem, Baum offers a unique approach to storytelling. Since 1982 she has inspired and educated audiences of all ages with her performances, keynotes and workshops.
“A Land Twice Promised” received a grant from the National Storytelling Network. She has also received several Individual Artist Awards from the Maryland State Arts Council and the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County Maryland. She won a Parents’ Choice Recommended Award for her CD, “Far Away and Close to Home.”
This presentation is free and open to the public.
