Congratulations to our students for having completed their first year at The Freedom Theatre’s School of Performing Arts!
The self-devised play The Warehouse is the result of a class on theatre history over the past months with Khawla Ibrahim, an award-winning young director from the Golan Heights who has already worked on several projects with The Freedom Theatre. Embedded in the story of a group of young actors working in a warehouse to earn some money on the side, the presentation featured monologues from several theatre classics, from plays by the ancient Greek Sophokles and William Shakespeare to 19th century Russian and Norwegian playwrights Anton Chekhov and Henrik Ibsen. A particular challenge for the students was to perform the monologues in High Arabic, requiring particular engagement in order to get the message in the text across to the audience.
