Creation Under Occupation: An Evening with Jenin Freedom Theatre

This month Zoe Lafferty, Associate Director of The Jenin Freedom Theatre and Ahmed Tobasi, a Palestinian actor with the Freedom Theatre have been touring Britain, screening shorts films, documentaries and discussing cultural resistance.

The Freedom Theatre was built in the heart of the Palestinian resistance in Jenin Refugee Camp in 2006. The aim was to create a political and artistic movement of theatre and filmmakers who could fight the Israeli Occupation through art and use cultural resistance as a tool to fight oppression.

Tower Hamlets Jenin Friendship Association are proud to be hosting Ahmed at the iconic Wilton’s Music Hall, London on the evening of Monday 23rd June for the final event of the tour. There will be an interactive performance involving members of the audience.

Doors open: 6.30pm

Peformance starts: 7.30pm

Tickets are £5 on the door and all proceeds will go towards Tower Hamlets Jenin Friendship Association.

Palestinian food and refreshments will be available from the wonderful Maramia Cafe from 6.30pm.
