The Redzone Festival is set to launch Wednesday, premiering five productions by Arab artists that mingle theater, dance and art, all confronting censorship and promoting freedom of expression.It's presented by Al-Mawred, a nonprofit supporting MENA artists through grants and capacity building, in partnership with KKV, an Oslo-based nonprofit aiming to encourage artists and widen the space for freedom of artistic expression.This edition marks the first time Redzone is being staged as a stand-alone event.Written by Lebanon's Wael Kaddour and directed by Syria's Abdullah Al-Kafri, "The Confession" is a theater piece that takes the audience into a day in the life of a character named Jalal, who Muhajer said is facing both his past and new choices, and a former army officer who's pressed to return to service after an uprising begins. The shows are true to the festival's name, which Muhajer said signifies all subjects considered as socially or politically taboo.
