Two Syrian plays at the Arab Theater Authority Festival in Jordan

The Directorate of Theaters and Music participates in the 12th session of the Arab Theater Authority Festival in Amman with two theatrical performances of its production; “Three Stories” directed by Ayman Zidan and taken from a text by the Argentine writer and theater director Oswaldo Dracon. The second play is entitled “Kimia” directed by Ajaj Saleem based on the text of Magnetic Fields by the Russian writer Alexander Obraztsov.

On this participation, Imad Jalloul, director of theaters and music at the Ministry of Culture, said:“We appreciate the keenness of the Arab Theater Authority on the participation of the Syrian theatrical performances in the activities that they used to organize in various Arab countries, "noting that the two theatrical performances which participating in the festival fall outside the official competition that stipulates that the text must be written by an Arab writer.

In turn, director Saleem said, "The sixteen performances that participated in the festival were chosen from among 240 Arab theater shows, so choosing any show to participate in the festival is an award in itself."

It is worth mentioning that the festival, which started on the 10th of this month, will last until the 16th of it.
