  • Artistic Director of The Freedom Theatre taken by Israeli Army | The Freedom Theatre
    Micaela Miranda explains what happened The dog started barking so I went outside and saw soldiers jumping over the gate and come into the yard of the house They asked for my husband and I asked what for that it s my right to know and it s my house The soldiers replied that they were not going to tell me They then took Nabil brought him to an army jeep and drove off We are very worried because we don t know where they took him and why Jonatan Stanczak Managing Director of The Freedom Theatre I live on the floor above Nabil and when I heard what was happening I tried to go down to talk to the soldiers because I speak Hebrew The house was surrounded by masked Israeli soldiers and three of them immediately pointed their weapons at me and pushed me back into the house Attempts were immediately made to contact the District Coordination Office of the Israeli army but to no avail More than half the employees of The Freedom Theatre were recently called to interrogations by the Israeli army including Nabil Al Raee All came to the appointments as scheduled and answered to their best of their knowledge the given questions even though they were intimidated and even threatened Jonatan Stanczak continues I don t understand why they do this after they know they could simply have made a phone call to Nabil and he would have come to answer any questions or concerns that they might have Since this has happened so many times in the past I can t interpret it as anything else than an ongoing harassment of the employees of The Freedom Theatre and their families by the Israeli army At this point it is unclear if any other

  • Jo Salas joins the Freedom Bus | The Freedom Theatre
    We have problem with the occupation As we drive through another village W points out a garage called Haifa Garage That means that it s run by refugees from Haifa he says They remember their home with the name This village like the others has mostly rather stark utilitarian cement houses but in a few favored spots there are imposing houses with arches and pillars I also see many buildings that appear to have been abandoned before they were completed We drive by another small village surrounded by fields and olive groves W and H explain that this is a 3000 year old village populated by Palestinian Jews a living embodiment of this ancient and shared history They are Jewish by heritage and religion but culturally they are Arabs Then a new looking settlement surrounded by Arab land on which the settlers have cut down all the trees A donkey escorted by Arab women pulls a cart laden with garlic We drive through Bir Zeit well of olive oil In the town square there is a photo of Saddam Hussein H says I like this man W sensing my surprise reminds me that before Saddam turned into a murderous monster he achieved good things for Iraq including supporting women s rights In the distance are the large modern buildings of Bir Zeit University Most of the students are Arab but there are also Jews Christians and internationals We re finally arriving in Ramallah cars and people jostling each other on the busy streets It is high up and you can see nearby Jerusalem from some places We can see Jerusalem but they can t see us says a woman I meet later smiling ruefully Some of the women on the street are in tight jeans and stiletto heels along with their fashionable looking headscarves A few have uncovered heads They look very different from the women in Jenin in their elegant but stiflingly hot head to toe garments We pass Mahmoud Abbas s residence which is also the seat of the Palestinian Authority W and H are sarcastic about Mahmoud as they refer to him They say that opinion is divided about him some say he is a collaborator with the Israelis Others respect his leadership After the performance I go to meet a woman who is a distinguished Palestinian theatre director We have been in email contact and looking forward to meeting each other She is waiting for me at the door of her theatre I feel as though I ve known her for years We have dinner along with her husband and professional partner and two friends from Jenin Soon she will bring her production of Richard 2nd to the Globe Theatre in London as part of the Globe to Globe festival with 37 Shakespeare plays in 37 languages She lives in Jerusalem a 10 or 15 minute drive from Ramallah if you have an Israeli passport an hour or more depending on checkpoint delays for any Palestinian no matter how distinguished because they are not allowed to use the four lane highway that connects these cities April 12 We arrived in Bethlehem last night in the dark and I haven t yet had a chance to look around yet We means the Freedom Bus team the five Playback Theatre performers the artistic director myself and A a young Canadian woman who s with us this week Yesterday in Ramallah we were also with twelve boys ages 11 to 14 from Jenin and a neighboring village plus a videographer and two photographers documenting this whole project The children had taken part in a photography project exploring and recording the problems of water in their community In Ramallah we went to the headquarters of a large foundation where they had arranged a video hook up with a group of children in Gaza who d just completed a similar project We could see the Gaza children on a large screen about ten kids a little younger and half of them girls The visual contact in itself was amazing these children at the moment have no possible way of ever meeting although they live in the same country not much more than 100 miles from each other The Gaza children presented their findings no municipal water system very little water available by any means most of it contaminated They can use seawater but it is inadequately desalinated People get sick They said Gaza is becoming like a dump because there is no system to deal with garbage The kids speaking about it were confident and well informed passionate but measured We can t clean ourselves said one boy The Jenin children watched rapt and asked questions One of the boys presented what they had prepared photos of wells that are useless because they are not permitted to drill deep enough photos of the luxuriantly green fields belonging to the settlement the other side of a razor wire fence thanks to a spring that used to be on village land The name of the village means spring In the summer they run out of water altogether and have to buy water from a truck which shows up every few days Even this water is not guaranteed to be clean Again questions and discussion The kids asked each other about swimming pools no one has access of course to a place to swim that s nearby and clean One of the adults asked what it was like to see the Israelis with their plentiful clean water We feel we are not free We feel it is injustice We feel abused After a lunch break the Freedom Bus team did Playback Theatre for these children separated by distance and rigid political boundaries Sitting in the audience it was all I could do not to break down in tears both at the tragedy of the situation and at the extraordinary spirit of the children They listened to each other s stories watched each other on
