  • Lost Land | The Freedom Theatre
    is full of the prescience of the catastrophe that is about to befall the world and particularly its young people The Freedom Theatre s adaptation offers a fascinating re imagining of this great French classic against the background of the Palestinian plight where beneath every endeavour is a yearning for what has been taken destroyed trampled upon A people occupied and uprooted longing for a Lost Land On the surface Lost Land is a romantic and simple story suffused with the overwhelming power of first love and the first experience of beauty which is no sooner experienced than lost But the play has great complexity beneath the surface It reflects upon the past youth loss and the demands that history makes on ordinary human beings Being born at that specific moment in time these ordinary human beings become extraordinary Lost Land is supported by the Swedish Postcode Lottery the Consulate General of France in Jerusalem the Roddick Foundation and by Sida as part of the PAN program Death is not the greatest loss the greatest loss is what dies within us while being alive Lost Land dismissed love childhood friends whose paths cross in a future not of their design Choosing to stand up fight and resist questioning You can write about anything in this world but can you change anything in it 2013 11 20 Johanna Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Name Email Website Comment Artistic Team Nabeel AlRaee Artistic Director Micaela Miranda Movement Director Qais Saadi Director Assistant in abscence Jameyla Kiswani Executive Producer Mohamed Saadi Light Technician Operator Sami Saadi Sound Technician Operator Dabke Trainer Ahmad Matahen Stage Carpenter Adnan Torokman Technical and Logistics Manager Alia Alrosan Props and Costumes Supervisor Mohammed Moawiya Publicity Designer Johanna Wallin Communications Fadi Abed
