• Towards fulfilling the dream of cultural resistence

    Today April 4, is the start of The Freedom Theatre's annual celebration of cultural resistance, in memory of Juliano Mer Khamis. This day has strong symbolical value to us because six years ago, Juliano was assassinated outside The Freedom Theatre by an unknown murderer. Today is also the commemoration of the 2002 Battle of Jenin when our community held against a brutal invasion by the occupation forces.

    The basic principles of The Freedom Theatre include developing awareness and re-imagining reality to create a progressive viewpoint that opposes any attempts to crush people’s dreams or place external conditions on their aspirations.
