Live and Kicking

The Freedom Theatre wishes to thank all its friends and supporters for standing beside it in the recent difficult days. We have received hundreds of emails, faxes and letters praising our work and urging us to continue our cultural activities. We therefore wish to assure you that The Freedom Theatre is Live and Kicking!

Our children’s acting group, Dragon, is on their way back to Jenin from France after a successful tour during which they performed their play The Magic Flute in font of full houses in several cities. The tour was organised by the Friends of The Freedom Theatre in France. 

Soon the students of The Freedom Theatre’s Acting School will be travelling to Germany as part of a tour organised by KinderKulturKarawane 2009, to present their play Stories from the Camp

Participants in our multimedia programme are preparing new short films and another issue of our youth magazine is to be published shortly. In addition, a new photography exhibition will opened at The Freedom Theatre this summer. 

We also would like to take this opportunity to clarify and correct some distorted statements made about us in recent publications:

The Freedom Theatre is a Palestinian organisation, officially registered under the Palestinian Authority, which fully accepts the latter's policy regarding a two-state solution.

We suffer from an incurable malady: Hope
