Every year on May 15, Palestinians around the world, numbering about 12.4 million, mark the ‘Nakba’ or ‘catastrophe’.
As 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the 1948 Palestinian exodus, three artists from Gaza – writer and director Ahmed Masoud, writer and director Ahmed Najar and Khaled Ziada, founder and director of Arabic culture promoters MARSM – have put together a week-long festival of theatre, dance, films and talks to commemorate the Palestinian experience of dispossession and loss of a homeland.
@70: Celebration of Contemporary Palestinian Culture will take place at RADA Studios, Chenies Street, London from the 14-20 May and is supported by Amnesty International UK, the Hoping Foundation, Amos Trust, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Al Zaytouna Dance Theatre.
