The Freedom Theatre, an infamous and decidedly political theatre in Jenin, Palestine, is in the midst of a 9-day ‘Freedom Bus tour.’ The Freedom Theatre is one of a few professional venues for performing theatre in the occupied Palestinian territories and is located in the Jenin refugee camp, a struggling community with minimal resources including cultural ones.
The Theatre’s tour involves a series of events including poetry and music, political demonstrations against Israel’s Separation Wall and playback theatreperformances. In essence, the Freedom Bus tour promotes cultural resistance to occupation and injustice.
