Following up the work of Maysoon Pachachi and Noura Sakkaf in their film portrait of Bourj al Barajneh refugee camp in Lebanon, BITTER WATER, Az is developing a project to create a long term development of theatre in the camp.

Most of the families in this camp have been there, like many others, since 1948 when they were ejected from their land by the new Israeli state. The millions of Palestinians who were forced to seek refuge in neighbouring states have become a 'forgotten' people. The project is aimed at addressing this 'invisibility' and play a part in reversing it.

The project will involve the resourcing and enabling of a phased development of workshops, presentations and training.
