Change in artistic direction of The Freedom Theatre

Nabil Al-Raee, artistic director of The Freedom Theatre since 2012, has changed his role at the theatre to associate artist. 

Nabil Al-Raee joined The Freedom Theatre in 2007, initially to lead theatre workshops for youth. The first play he directed was The Journey, depicting the experiences of a group of young people longing to travel to the sea. He continued to stage plays, teach at The Freedom Theatre School and develop the pedagogy of the school with Juliano Mer Khamis and Micaela Miranda. After the assassination of Juliano Mer Khamis in 2011, Nabil assumed responsibility for the artistic direction of the theatre, and together with his colleagues developed a pedagogy of theatre under occupation, about which he lectures and participates in conferences internationally and in Palestine. 

Artistic enquiries to The Freedom Theatre can be addressed to the general secretary, Mustafa Sheta: mustafa@thefreedomtheatre.org.
