The critically acclaimed Palestinian dance troupe, El-Funoun, is coming to the U.S. in November for the first time since 2006. The tour is scheduled to visit New Jersey (11/11), Washington D.C. (11/13), Chicago (11/16), and San Francisco (11/18).
El-Funoun was founded in 1979 in the West Bank city Al-Bireh by a small group of artists. The troupe, which is volunteer based, has performed about 1,500 times in Palestine and internationally. El-Funoun has won numerous awards over the years, including the Palestinian Authority’s “Palestine Award for Popular Folklore.” Read More via PalestineInAmerica.
