During the weeks of theatre training, we introduced new exercises, games, and scene-making to their counselors and social workers, which they will pass on to their youth. At the same time, we learned so much about working with traumatized youth, and the value of self-expression to uplift and release tensions.

This new documentary film explores the origins, performances, personalities and fate of Red Mole, the legendary theatre group which included Magdalena Aotearoa co-founder Sally Rodwell, mask and puppet virtuouso Deborah Hunt, the poet Alan Brunton and many others from Aotearoa’s alternative arts community of the early 1970s.

Our work in Palestine inspires us, and also reminds us of the ongoing plight of Afghan women and girls! Since the Taliban's takeover two years ago, women are homebound, forbidden from even going to a park with their children, usual destinations for a sunny summer’s day! Talented, educated women can no longer work in their professions; girls are banned from school.
