Ana Hurra on Tour in USA
Ana Hurra (I am free) is a play that depicts one of the interrogation sessions in Israeli jails. The play, written and directed by Palestinian artist Valantina Abu Oqsa, is based on testimonies and stories by political female prisoners who stood heroically in defiance against their interrogators. Abu Oqsa creates a theatre experience that is derived from the Palestinian reality through studies and in-depth research that lasted almost one year and culminated in interviews with several former Palestinian male and female political prisoners, documenting the experiences to the tiniest detail, delving into the unknown and revealing facts, constituting a precedent in the Palestinian theater and for the Palestinian prisoners in general.
Originally from the North of Palestine, Ma’lia village in the upper Galilee. Valantina Saleem Tamam Abu Oqsa was born in 1967. She currently lives in Haifa with her Jerusalemite husband and their two sons Nashed and Yaman. She is one of the co-founders of the Palestinian Theatre League.
Classified as a self starter who is exceptional in her work. She continuously rises in her magnificent performances on stage, leaving her audience mesmerized and always wanting more.
