Gizem Akman – The Girl in ” Homework” By Ziad Adwan
“There is a strong reason for my motivation to take part in this project, because I had the experience of working with Ziad Adwan on his previous project; I trust his spirit, I find the points he makes in the theater valuable and I admire his clever and elegant way of understanding, writing and bringing such important topics onto the stage. “
