Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east



Al Balad Theater

Al Balad Theater is a multi-purpose artistic and community space established by renovating an old cinema house in downtown Amman built in 1948. The space aims to promote young artists from Jordan and the region by presenting their works, providing rehearsal space, and contributing to strengthening the cultural movement in Jordan through interaction and cooperation with performing art groups, NGOs, and individuals, public and private, in Jordan, the region, and the world.

Al Balad Theater organizes theater, dance, and music performances as well as film and video screenings in cooperation with local, regional, and international groups and organizations. The theater also hosts training workshops in the performing arts. As a multi-purpose space located in a neglected area of Amman, Al Balad Theater also caters for children’s artistic activities.
