  • Playback Theatre | The Freedom Theatre
    The Playback Theatre project began last week with a 4 day intensive workshop audition attended by 11 young adults from Jenin Refugee Camp Jenin City and surrounding villages There was a hunger to tell T he people of Jenin have suffered much and yet for most it is unbearable to hear again and again the memories of pain and loss And so the stories lie buried Caught inside When the story remains untold or when the story is told but no one listens the person moves from bitterness and resentment towards a deep sense of alienation and apathy No one speaks and no one listens But the hunger remains At some level the desire to tell and the desire to be heard cannot be extinguished This yearning to communicate to make meaning of life and to have our story recognized and acknowledged is a non negotiable feature of our humanness During the 4 day workshop many stories were told Stories of love struggle desire and resistance However the telling took place within a unique context Stories were shared within the protected space and bounded ritual of theatre Each story was listened to by a team of actors and musicians who then transformed the teller s narrative into the language of sound movement music poetry and text In Playback Theatre every enactment is completely improvised a collaborative and artistic response based on the actors ability to empathize and reflect the essential structure and meaning of the tellers experience The youth in this workshop rose to the challenge with a grace of spirit and a compassionate artistry that was moving beyond words Ben Rivers Playback Theatre is an interactive theatre approach used in over 50 countries as a tool for community building consciousness raising and trauma recovery In a Playback Theatre performance

  • Palestinians can only watch as Egyptians are living their dream | The Freedom Theatre
    whisked four young men from their beds Nobody in the camp knew why this happened or where the men were taken That s just the way the world turns Peddlers hawked their wares this week behind the iron gates of the Jalameh crossing point hoping that Arab citizens of Israel whom the state has graciously allowed to enter Jenin might want to purchase something However the stores that line the street leading to Jenin a street currently undergoing a well funded renovation were mostly closed due to the lack of customers Meantime some 500 municipal workers in Jenin staged a strike protesting a wave of dismissals their places were taken by scabs supplied by contractors One municipality employee Jamal Zubeidi a dear friend who has accompanied us on visits to the camp for almost a decade told us this week from his home The entire world is changing and just one thing never changes the wages of a Palestinian worker Gold prices rise and fall currency rates of the shekel and dollar fluctuate and just one thing never rises or falls our workers salaries For 20 years it has been 50 60 shekels a day A kilogram of sugar cost a shekel and now it is five times more expensive but the wage remains 50 60 shekels a day A gas tank cost 20 shekels and now costs 70 and the worker s wage remains 50 60 shekels The Palestinian worker s salary is like God it remains the same thing forever Since the start of the demonstrations in Egypt Zubeidi has been glued night and day to Al Jazeera broadcasts Egypt s revolution instilled a spark of hope yet for him it has not broken the spell of gloomy despair that grips the camp We also had demonstrations he says These were staged in protest against Al Jazeera s disclosure of the documents We have more democracy than anywhere in the world They use speakers to call us to come out to demonstrate the Palestinian Authority even sends us buses to transport us to the protests In Egypt it s forbidden to demonstrate here they send us buses But they are not the right sort of protests Zubeidi continues I watch Al Jazeera all day long and I know what to believe and what to disbelieve All the residents of the camp support the demonstrators in Egypt They say If only this were to happen throughout the Arab world But there is a major difference between a regime and an occupation A struggle against an occupation lasts a long time In Egypt this is an internal struggle Should we get a state it will be more democratic than Egypt s We have much more experience with uprisings One of the reasons for our failure is the Arab regimes which haven t helped us We are not angry with the Arab people our anger is aimed at its governments These regimes never helped us All they do is pressure Mahmoud
