Working in Palestine as an actor might just be the most frustrating experience and at the same time it is as rewarding. The frustration comes from the lack of security and stability that prevails our lives. We make decisions made to match a constantly changing situation we cannot predict nor control. Creating in such a reality is a challenge, but when by a daily battle you succeed in defying the “reality” and “situation”. (I truly hate these words), and create art with a troop of actors that are willing to fight a stubborn fight for the right to be on stage. When the hardships become a part of the process and when the process is as important as the result. When the art created becomes truly part and parcel of what surrounds us comes the reward. Our performances are but the second act to the stone throwers outside our doors.
