This project aspires to contribute to the documentation of the history of Lebanese theater using a variety of ways that allows current and future generations to delve into it, to take note of its course and its effects, to question its problems and to interact with it. The “Radical experience of HAKAWATI Theatre/ Lebanon” is a digital audio-visual as well as printed archive of Lebanon’s leading theater experiences, which left a deep mark on Lebanese and Arab theater and continue to impact the course of contemporary theater. This project envisages to take a preliminary step in the technical documentation of Lebanese theater, paving the way for the archiving and circulation of the most important theatrical experiences in Lebanon.
