Guest play at Vega Scene from the Human International Documentary Festival.
A documentary theatre work based on the story of Palestinian poet Dareen Tatour, who was convicted by the Israeli authorities for “incitement to violence” over a poem and two posts she published on Facebook. She held a long legal battle (during which she was under house arrest) to prove that her poem and posts constituted a legitimate protest against the crimes of the Israeli occupation. In May 2018 she was convicted sentenced to five months in prison.
Einat Weizman, an Israeli Jewish theatre creator, famous actor and activist, met Dareen during her struggle and accompanied her. The encounter between the two created a special friendship that gave birth to the play based on the memoir Dareen wrote during her house arrest, her poems and thoughts, combined with Einat's texts. Einat is facing the silencing and theatre censorship of her works, which attempts to bring the Palestinian narrative to the stage.
Einat Weizman is an actor, director, playwright and political activist based in Tel Aviv. All her plays, performances and events are around documentary theater that is used as an investigative tool inside of the hidden spots of the Israeli apartheid. Her works are controversial in Israel.
