The Seven Gates of Damascus

‘The Seven Gates of Damascus” is a 7 section participatory musical theatre piece for refugee children and young audiences. The seven stages of the story will unfold in tandem with seven musical units where children undergo a challenge in each gate only to find out that they have the strength and resourcefulness to move on in their quest to find home. The journey is an analogy of the actual journey refugee children had to take from their homeland to a place of peace.

The project is a part of a PhD course which Maya is currently undertaking at SOAS, University of London. Read more here.
