A performance of ‘Majnoun Leila’, a play produced by choreographer and artistic director Philippe Talard, by the Alrowwad theatre company.

Buy a ticket and you can come to just one event or come to them all – the choice is yours! Each ticket allows one person entry to any event on the date of the ticket.

Inspired by the famous pre-Islamic poem ‘Laila and Majnoun’, as well as the political context in Palestine, this play was created by Philippe Talard in collaboration with the Commission for detainees and ex-detainees, the YMCA Rehabilitation Program and Alrowwad Cultural and Arts Society. The work started in July, with training workshops at Alrowwad involving six ex-detained children from Hebron through the YMCA Rehabilitation Program. The story of Majnoun and Laila is deeply rooted in Arab culture, just as Romeo and Juliet is in western culture.
