What We Do

The Freedom Theatre offers a range of cultural activities, including drama workshops, theatre performances, a three-year professional Theatre School and training in stage management, photography, filmmaking and creative writing.

Theatre
Our professional training programmes aim to build long-term capacity in the field of theatre and drama, and produce in-house theatre plays that tour locally and internationally. We also run theatre workshops for children and youth that introduce the young generation to theatre and provide them with powerful tools for dealing with the hardships of daily life under occupation. Continue Reading.

Multimedia
