The Freedom Theatre’s new book ‘Performing Cultural Resistance’ has now been published by LeftWord Books. This book, edited by Ola Johansson and Johanna Wallin, is a collection that documents the work of the theatre over the past decade.
As said by LeftWord “This is as much a documentation of the work of The Freedom Theatre in its first ten years as it is a testament to its growing significance as a source of inspiration in Palestine and around the world. This book depicts the theatre’s history, work, and vision through some of its key people. It gives room to thorough analyses of the context inwhich it operates and of the concept of Cultural Resistance, which is central to its work. Palestinian and international artists, academics and activists associated with the theatre, contribute personal and professional perspectives on the phenomenon that is The Freedom Theatre.”
Thank you to LeftWord books, Ola Johansson, Johanna Wallin and all those who contributed to make this book come to life.
You can order the book online on the LeftWord website here. We will soon be launching both books in Palestine, in collaboration with the Educational Bookshop in Jerusalem. More details coming soon!
