April 4 – a day with profound meaning for The Freedom Theatre. It is the fourth anniversary of the unsolved 2011 murder of Juliano Mer Khamis, The Freedom Theatre’s co-founder and general director. On this day, we remember and honour Juliano’s life, work and legacy, while we repeat our demand that those responsible for this crime be brought to justice. Read more about Juliano.

April 4 is also the anniversary of the large-scale invasion of Jenin Refugee Camp in 2002 by the Israeli army, which demolished the central parts of the camp, killed many and traumatised many more.

On this day, we will premiere The Siege, a theatre production inspired by real-life accounts from the 2002 siege of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, that played out parallell to the invasion of Jenin Refugee Camp and made headlines worldwide.

Welcome to join us! Please RSVP to info@thefreedomtheatre.org.
