WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Isaac theatrical work is entertaining, humorous and takes audiences on a journey. Her work raises awareness, encourages debate, and tackles issues of social injustice.
Riham is a talented artist. She deserves all the credit for the work we did together: without her Banksy's Alternativity wouldn't have happened
Ms. Isaac’s multi-media performance is among the most creative & innovative projects I have encountered in my research of Palestinian artists.
