JOIN THE ANNUAL FREEDOM RIDE IN OCCUPIED PALESTINE
The Freedom Theatre in partnership with many other organisations, including Jordan Valley Solidarity and the South Hebron Hills Popular Committee, annually organises a Freedom Ride in the West Bank, usually in March when people from across Palestine and abroad join communities at risk of forced expulsion from their ancestral homelands. The Freedom Ride includes interactive workshops, guided walks, volunteer work, political actions and cultural events. Through Playback Theatre, local residents share personal accounts about the realities of life and struggle under settler colonialism, military occupation and structural apartheid.
THE FREEDOM BUS
The Freedom Bus, an initiative of The Freedom Theatre, uses interactive theatre and cultural activism to bear witness, raise awareness and build alliances throughout occupied Palestine and beyond. Endorsers of the Freedom Bus include Alice Walker, Angela Davis, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, John Berger, Judith Butler, Luisa Morgantini, Maya Angelou, Mairead Maguire, Mazin Qumsiyeh, Noam Chomsky, Omar Barghouti and Peter Brook. The Freedom Bus is also endorsed by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions National Committee (BNC) and the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI). A range of other artists, activists, academics and organizations have endorsed the Freedom Bus
Audience members share autobiographical accounts and watch as a team of actors and musicians instantly transform these accounts into improvised theatre pieces. Playback Theatre provides opportunity for education, trauma response and community building
