In the first ever India-Palestine theatre collaboration, The Freedom Theatre from Jenin Refugee Camp will join forces with the legendary street theatre group Jana Natya Manch. Some of the highlights of this historic cultural exchange:
– A three-month residency in India for The Freedom Theatre’s students,
– A ten-city tour of India with over 30 performances and events with local artists,
– A tour in occupied Palestine, showcasing the work produced in India,
– A documentary film and a book about the project.
The Freedom Jatha for Palestine is entirely funded by individual contributions. You can be part of it! http://igg.me/at/freedom-jatha
We need to raise $20,000 to cover the costs of travel, simple accommodation, production of a street theatre play and touring it in India and Palestine. Every penny we raise will go directly to these essential costs.
We will make this Freedom Jatha happen. If we don’t raise the full amount, we will make do with what we have. If we raise more, we will do more!
So what’s in it for you? Well, in addition to the obvious satisfaction of knowing you have done your bit to support our cause, there are a few unique perks involved:
One of India’s foremost visual artists, Orijit Sen, has designed unique art pieces for this Freedom Jatha, and we want to give them to you. Get your own limited edition screen print, signed by the artist, or your own exclusive tote bag, t-shirt or poster with the beautiful art work. As if that was not enough, we’re also throwing in some of The Freedom Theatre’s most popular products, including the documentary Arna’s Children made by one of our founders, the late Juliano Mer Khamis.
