Kareem, a boy who lives in Jenin Refugee Camp with his family, is trying to study for his math exam, while navigating the endless circle of home, school, street that children in the camp move within.
Math Exam is The Freedom Theatre’s first play for children that is entirely created in-house, based on accounts by children in Jenin Refugee Camp. Math Exam illustrates the pressure that children feel from their families and from the schools. It uses comedy, physical theatre and imagination to touch upon serious issues that concern children. Every performance is followed by a workshop with the audience.
Math Exam is supported by Sida, as part of the Palestinian Performing Arts Network Program, by the EU and by the Swedish Postcode Lottery.
