Changing the Story
Noa Baum came to storytelling from the theater world, at first reluctantly and then wholeheartedly when a young girl transformed before her eyes. She was determined to find out why. Her signature story: “A Land Twice Promised” takes elements from her Israeli background and melds them with a Palestinian friend’s story to take a closer look at tradition, conflict, belief and friendship in a way that calls us all to account. Fifteen years of work and travel with this story led her to write a book about her journey and she offers us some of her learnings as a gift and a way shower.
