AMIR NIZAR ZUABI - THEATER DIRECTOR & PLAYWRIGHT
CONTEMPORARY THEATER IN PALESTINE
What’s happening in Palestinian theater today? Amid the vibrant and diverse theatre projects in Palestine, one key figure is Amir Nizar Zuabi, a playwright and director who has worked in the West Bank and internationally — and who is coorganizing a project to use theater to influence New Yorkers’ impressions of Palestinians. Zuabi joined his American co-organizer, Alexandra Aron, in a dialogue about his work in contemporary Palestinian theatre and culture, and the possibilities for using theater as a bridge between cultures.
