The play “The Prophet” fills the Peace Theater and collects almost 1 ton of food (Belém, Brazil)
New Acropolis Belém offered an unforgettable night to attendees at the Peace Theater with “O profeta”, a play inspired by the book of the same name by the Lebanese poet Khalil Gibran. The production was directed by Luiz Antônio Rocha and staged by the actor and musician Sami Bordokan, who shared the stage with the musician William Bordokan.
Before the performance, Lúcia Helena Galvão, author of the adaptation and volunteer teacher at New Acropolis, gave a lecture about the author, explaining how this artist lived life in a very deep way and how he knew how to express it with a unique and remarkable beauty and sensitivity.
More than 630 people participated, occupying the entire theater and helping to collect almost 1 ton of food through solidarity tickets. The food items were donated to the Paraense Institute of Education and Art – Ipearte, to be distributed among the families assisted by the Institute in Marituba.
“For us, who promote Philosophy, Culture and Volunteering for love, it was a very enriching experience. At New Acropolis we believe in the power of art and beauty to awaken better citizens. So, it was a joy to bring this event to our beloved city,” says Lênon Raiol, director of New Acropolis Belém.
