Diyar Theatre will perform at Féile an Phobail 2022!

We are delighted to share that the dancers from Palestinian company Diyar Theatre will be performing at Féile an Phobail 2022. Combining folklore with contemporary dance – in a way that conveys not only a passion for dance but a commitment to revitalising a national heritage – the performances will take place this August at Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich, Falls Road, Belfast. This is a special opportunity for audiences to enjoy debkeh dance in Belfast, to learn more about this part of the world and meet the dancers who have travelled to be at the festival.

Visit the venue’s website to book tickets for performances on the following dates:

Wednesday 10th August 7pm – 9pm
Thursday 11th August 3:30pm – 5:00pm
Friday 12th August 7pm – 9pm

The performance will be in two parts and will last approximately an hour. There will then be a short pause before the open discussion with the dancers.

Tickets are £5/£7 per person and group rates apply.

(Please note the performances are suitable for children aged 10+.)

We are also excited to be hosting two FREE cultural events when the dancers are in Belfast:

An Arabic Cultural Family Celebration which will take place on Monday 8 August from 7pm to 8:30pm
This is free social event hosted by the dancers with short performances of debkeh dance, food, storytelling and conversation.

An Arabic Cultural Celebration for Women and Girls only on Saturday 13 August from 10:30am to 12:00pm. This will be hosted by the women from Diyar Theatre and will involve short performances of debkeh dance with an opportunity to join in, food, storytelling and conversation.

These events will also take place at Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich, Falls Road.
