Bringing Playback Theatre to another refugee camp!
By Johanna Wallin - Communications Officer
Playback Theatre performance
October is upon us and here at The Freedom Theatre we are about to embark on a new adventure: a Playback Theatre intensive workshop in Jenin refugee camp and Al-Aroub refugee camp!
Over 12 days, international and Palestinian participants will learn and practice the core elements of the unique Playback Theatre method, with emphasis upon its use within the Palestinian context.
The first half of the workshop will take place in Jenin refugee camp and the second in Al-Aroub, where public performances will also be given. Al-Aroub refugee camp is located close to Bethlehem and Hebron. Much like Jenin, the camp suffers greatly from the Israeli occupation, not least through movement restrictions, frequent army incursions and settler violence. Like all refugee camps it is very isolated from the world at large as well as from the rest of occupied Palestine. In this context, the arts become crucially mportant and we are very happy to be able to offer workshops and performances to the Al-Aroub community!
