The book “Acting Out: Voices from the Theatre” is a collaborative work between 50 Palestinian actors, actresses, directors and theater managers, and Dr. Jonathan Daitch. During two extended visits to the West Bank in 2015 and 2016, and European tours in 2017 and 2018, and by video conferences with Gaza artists, Daitch amassed approximately 100 hours of recorded conversations, which were then transcribed and edited. Illustrated by photographs by Daitch, the texts provide a forum for artists to evoke their theaters, their professional practices, their lives, and Palestinian culture. Their words are personal and powerful, showing that their work is above all an act of creation. Join several of these Palestinian artists directly from the International Peace Center in Bethlehem to discover the powerful world of Palestinian theatre, its role in preserving and transmitting Palestinian culture, and its work with children and young adults.
