Amer Khalil, Palestinian National Theatre / El Hakawati, Jerusalem
In September 2016 Amer Khalil was in residence at Schloss Bröllin together with 15 colleagues – from all places of palestinian presence – working on a project on »identity«.
»The Palestinian National Theatre somehow reflects the situation of the whole country. It’s not easy for many reasons and mainly … hope. People are disappointed – we don’t find anymore the reason why we do theatre…«
»I came to the Hakawati when I was 17 old … 1989/90 we gave it away … then i took it over again a couple of years ago … and now, here we are in Germany, working on, what else, our identity!«
