    of the Palestinian flag The mask itself was designed using patterns associated with old Islamic art creating an immediate visual impact While the name Islamic art may lead one to believe it is rooted in religion the art itself actually transcends language culture and creed Generating Cultural Resistance The Freedom Theatre s new tagline Generating Cultural Resistance compliments our former and still relevant Creation under Occupation Just like Islamic art the theatre knows no boundaries in terms of nationality religion gender or ethnicity and collaborates with artists from all genres and all parts of the world who stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people in their struggle for freedom The idea of cultural resistance is not a new one and is something the theatre has always promoted in the context of unjust and oppressive systems We believe it is through culture and art that the Palestinian people will mobilize and effect change We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our supporters throughout the years and we welcome you to continue with us on this cultural journey Please continue to explore our new website to learn more about our current projects 2012 09 26 Johanna Share tweet Same Theatre New Look As an organisation devoted to social change through culture and the arts The Freedom Theatre is forever growing and changing in response to community needs artistic trends and visions What began as a small grassroots initiative in 2006 has developed into a leading cultural centre in the north of the West Bank As we continued to implement new projects and extend our reach we saw the need for a logo that is inclusive of all our activities including but not limited to theatre The new logo maintains the image of the mask a classic symbol of theatre

  • The Caretaker opens to full house | The Freedom Theatre
    Freedom Theatre s Acting School students perform an adaptation of Harold Pinter s celebrated play It s the first time at a Pinter play I see children laughing The script managed to make the play serious and funny at the same time Very talented actors with strong presence very powerful I feel that the Director reflected his experiences in prison The Caretaker is a psychological study of family relationships and the struggle for power between two brothers Mick and Aston and a stranger that Aston brings home At first the stranger seems to be a victim but slowly he attempts to take over the house Each of the characters is fighting for survival and searching for some sense of identity in a world that is constantly changing and unreliable To the Director Nabil Al Raee the main theme of The Caretaker is the lack of meaningful communication This play reflects our current situation very well There is no real communication here in Palestine and this is a key reason for the problems we are experiencing right now The Caretaker was originally scheduled to open in June but the production process was abruptly interrupted when Nabil Al Raee was taken away by the Israeli army in a night raid on his home on June 6 Al Raee was held in military detention for five weeks before he was released on bail on July 12 1 Al Raee s incarceration was one in a series of incidents of harassment against The Freedom Theatre in the year following the assassination of its co founder Juliano Mer Khamis Performances September 24 4 pm September 25 11 am September 26 4 pm September 27 11 am September 29 12 am Director and Adaptation Nabil Al Raee Cast Aston Alaa Shehadeh Davies Motaz Malhees Mick Saber
