TEV is creating a series of ‘video-poems’, based on the book, The Prophet, by Lebanese-American poet, Kahlil Gibran. Composed of 26 prose poems on varied themes, the book was published in 1923, and quickly lauded for its beauty and depth.
During the pandemic, our ability to make live theatre was limited, but we still had the desire to put some art and beauty out into the world! So we came up with the idea to create these videos, following a theatre-like rehearsal process, working with actors, artists and musicians to create a unique journey into Gibran’s profound words.
The first chapter in our series, “On Children” is now viewable!
