And September sees the launch of The Freedom Theatre’s Professional Theatre School. After a year and half hiatus, we have opened registrations for the next cohort of aspiring actors to join our theatre programme. The Freedom Theatre offers an intensive educational program in theatre, with a focus on acting, devising and the concept of cultural resistance. The Theatre School is the first theatre school in Palestine promoting freedom, unity and struggle against all kinds of oppression and aims to foster a new generation of theatre professionals who are open to exploring innovative artistic methods in the field, while also using the arts as an important tool for positive social change in their community.
Through its productions, the Theatre School plays a crucial role in increasing access to culture for the Palestinian population, in raising the standards of performing arts in the area and encouraging more people to participate in cultural activities. The call for registrations is now open with auditions arranged for next month. By December, we aim to have our new cohort of students inducted and ready to start their education and training in January 2019. For more information, please contact us on
“I have learned many things in the Theatre School – the most important one is that The Freedom Theatre is not just a theatre, it’s a stage that can create revolution. Theatre is my whole life now. It gives me hope, and dreams. On stage I can do anything.” Motaz Malhees, Theatre School graduate 2014
