• Save ASHTAR Theatre First Palestinian Drama School

  • Summer at The Freedom Theatre

    Ramadan has been a busy month at The Freedom Theatre, with a string of cultural events including hip hop, stand-up comedy and film screenings - and now we are shifting into an even higher gear!

    We start off with an intensive training of theatre trainers, among them three generations of graduates of our Theatre School, who will then initiate their own theatre clubs in communities in the northern West Bank. Through the new clubs, young people who otherwise have no access to theatre will get a taste of its magic. All the clubs will work towards presentations that we aim to showcase to the community in a theatre festival next summer.

  • Bethlehem International Performing Arts Festival

    Dear Dance and Theatre Companies, Groups, Independent Theatres, Dance Makers and Artists!

    It is our distinct pleasure to invite you to consider participating at the 2018 BIPAF.  We at Diyar Theatre / Diyar Academy for Children and Youth have held the festival twice on a national and regional level at the International Center of Bethlehem, Palestine.  The festival has been well-received, and we are now eager to expand participation to international dance, theatre, puppetry, dance theatre, circus, music theatre and storytelling groups.  To that end, we are opening the global application process for dance and theater companies, groups, independent theaters, dance makers and artists.
