"Orient & Dance Theater" is an artistic space situated in Ramallah/Al‐Bireh, Palestine.
It was created in 2009 by a Palestinian contemporary dancer Maher Shawamra. After years of work in dancing internationally and locally, Maher decided to create a place for change in Palestine.
"ODT" aims to be the leading performance art school in Palestine. Besides educating artists, "ODT" also aims to trigger a change in the community. The theater is a place for Dance, Music and Arts. In an environment, where contemporary performances are not well known and therefore not welcomed, "ODT" is artistically fighting prejudices.
