Puppets lead the way

Khoury and Ariel had chemistry from the word go. They shared a love of the arts and a propensity for making good use of them for youthful enlightenment.

The notion of utilizing music as a “universal language” to help bridge cultural, ethnic and possibly even political divides is not a new one. That does not make it any less relevant, but Pablo Ariel prefers a different artistic tack in his cohesion-oriented endeavor.

Argentinean-born Ariel has been in the business of theater and, specifically, theater with social benefit for quite some time. As artistic director and founder of the Galilee Multicultural Theater – a.k.a. Zikit – based near Tefen in the Galilee, Ariel is a staunch believer in the power of theater productions, particularly of a largely non-verbal ilk, to entertain people of all ages and backdrops. He has practiced what he preaches all over the globe, taking in Australia, Singapore, North and South America and Europe.
