Founded by Mrs. Nidal Al Achkar in 1994, Al Madina Theatre is a theatre, exhibition and workshop space for all types of cultural activities. Since its opening, many local and international companies and artists have performed at the Al Madina Theatre. Al Madina Theatre developed into the Al Madina Theatre Association for Arts and Culture in March 2005, with a committee composed of prominent personalities from the civil society: lawyers, scholars, development experts, cultural specialists, etc. The Association changed location in March 2005 moving from Clemenceau Street to Hamra Street.
Al Madina Theatre’s goal is to promote open dialogue and to create a space of free expression for all issues facing the Lebanese and Arab societies. It is a multidisciplinary platform with a vision to bring together artists, writers and intellectuals to enable them to present their work. In addition to plays and performances, Al Madina Theatre organizes festivals, exhibitions, screens movies (ciné-club), and hosts cultural events such as conferences, seminars, lectures, book signings, workshops, etc.
