Isabella Hammad  Raja Shehadeh: Political Theatre image

In a land under occupation, authors can bear witness and actors can enter the heart and mind of a territory; but do they foster a spirit of shared resistance? Enter Ghost, Isabella Hammad’s latest novel, explores the ties that bind people to their homeland as her characters prepare to stage a production of Hamlet in the West Bank. Raja Shehadeh has written several acclaimed books on life and ideas in occupied Palestine. They share their views with Daniel Hahn.
