“Theater, like revolting streets, recreates realities that overcome dominant social and political structures.”
Leadership: Hashem Adnan’s work is at the crossroads of art and political organizing. As a theater professional, he fuses his passion for the arts with politics to create engaging and socially relevant work that reimagines the world as a way to recreate it.
Hashem is currently involved in a series of collaborative artistic and political initiatives. He is a member of the LAAB, a group of artists, researchers, and activists working to address social issues through critical and creative means.
Vision: Hashem supports a pluralistic vision of leadership that strongly challenges the traditional models that dominate Lebanese politics, especially those based on individualistic and patriarchal values. He hopes to consolidate his practice into a sustainable model that can be applied across movements and disciplines.
