A statement of solidarity


Backstage Theatre (CLG) believes unequivocally in freedom of expression for artists and cultural organisations, and their right to make work that is challenging, provoking, and political.

We recognise the importance of artists’ voices in society and the need for conditions where artists can create and speak safely, without fear.

Backstage Theatre stands in solidarity with the people of Palestine and is committed to being an Apartheid Free Zone. Palestinian artists are valued members of our dance and arts community in Ireland.

We join the global call for an immediate ceasefire in Palestine, and support those agencies doing vital work to bring food and humanitarian medical aid to the people there.

We support the Palestinian led call for Boycott Divestment and Sanctions and stand united in our commitment to freedom, safety, and dignity for all.
