The Freedom Theatre UK Friends is working to build artistic links between Britain and Palestine and assist The Freedom Theatre by organising fundraising and awareness-raising events, as well to raise the profile of The Freedom Theatre in Britain through press and PR activities coordinated with The Freedom Theatre. We are staffed entirely by volunteers.
In spring 2015 we organised The Freedom Theatre’s first UK tour, with The Siege. The tour was a tremendous success, reaching out to many thousands of people through twenty performances in ten venues across Britain. Read more about the tour. TFTUK has also organised a string of talks, events and film screenings in support of the theatre.
In Britain we believe there is not only the space and desire to hear the voices of artists from Palestine but a need to re-engage with theatre that aims to challenge and re-imagine the world. We hope to set a precedent for British and Palestinian artists collaborating together in a deep and meaningful exchange of culture, ideas and practices.
