Syria is the world's most dangerous place to be a civilian. Every day, barrel bombs drop from the sky onto schools, hospitals and homes. Almost half of the country has been forced to flee their homes. The population is squeezed between the savagery of ISIS extremists and the atrocities of the Assad regime. The official death toll has now reached 190,000, and there is no end to the conflict in sight. But there is another side to the conflict -- the emergence of the peacemakers and the heroes: emergency responders, medical professionals, relief organizations and others saving lives with no regard for sect or creed, alongside journalists risking their lives to tell stories. We bring together members of the "White Helmets" -- Syria's voluntary first responders -- with an expert panel to discuss the future of peacemaking in Syria.
Abel Azcona uses his body to illustrate personal experiences of abandonment, pain, and empathy. In Someone Else he shows us interpersonal relations, both sentimental and sexual, in which in a parallel way, true feelings, true love, or the true object of desire are all hidden. The artist shares different intimacies with different people, making the antagonist-guest the protagonist. He presents dreams that become true in the mind, but never in the actual body. Abel Azcona is a Spanish interdisciplinary and performance artist. He creates cathartic works as a means of self-knowledge and personal construction. Azcona’s artwork has been presented in various museums, contemporary art centers, and galleries worldwide. Synergistically autobiographical and critical, his work takes audiences into his inner world and invites them to share their own experiences. His themes are directly informed by his experiences as the child of a prostitute, and his passing through multiple children’s shelters, mental institutions, and foster homes, as well as adolescent episodes of drug use, prostitution, and several suicide attempts. The resilient artist assures the public that when he practices self-harm, it is his own choice to alter the shape of his body, as opposed to an abused child or woman who has no choice.

The endlessly imaginative PigPen Theatre Co. elevates traditional storytelling to high art in the fantastical, song-filled play THE OLD MAN AND THE OLD MOON. After nearly a lifetime of tending to the old moon (which leaks its liquid light daily), an old man abandons his post when his wife unexpectedly leaves home. With spirited folk music, inventive theatrical effects and a rollicking array of ever-changing characters, the wunderkinds of PigPen perform a folk-rock fable about light, love and an epic journey to the End of the World.
