The HIP HOP OPERA PROJECTS
Working Towards Social Change through Art and Music (2011-2013)
Living and creating films and music together participants of the project experience Hip-Hop and other urban art forms as tools for
citizen empowerment and social change. Israeli, Palestinian, German, and African musicians, film-makers, and dancers voice experiences
of forced migration, the quest for home, and investigate the human right of asylum. The Hip H'Opera projects
began with a workshop in the desert and continued until the performances in Israel and Germany.
This is an ongoing project, that takes place repeatedly with different partners.For a detailed project description and updates please visit:
