Minwal Theatre Company was founded in Beirut 2014 as a result of the need to combine efforts in strengthening, researching and developing frameworks for theatre productions and programs. It aims to contribute to an increase in Lebanese theatrical productions that has high artistic quality; to create artistic opportunities and practice that activate the role of local youth to defend their social and cultural rights; and to create a platform for private and public schools in different regions in Lebanon. For us theatre is the typical space to exercise democracy. Contributing to the Lebanese theatrical scene reinforces theatre as a profession, and our work also tackles identity and memory.
