On behalf of the Sharjah Heritage Authority, Iraqi writer and journalist Dhafer Jalloud has published his book “Heritage in the Emirates Theatre: Manifestations of Employment and Manifestations of Inspiration”. reading of plays that have utilized the legacy of Emirati theater as author and director with critique and analysis since its inception in the late 1950s to the present. It thus monitored a profound experience and cultural cognitive integration witnessed by the Emirate theater, starting from the squares that saw popular theatrical representations drawn from tales of Arab folklore, and in some of them from the tales of the Arabian Nights, up to deepening the experience and awareness towards the establishment of theater groups that have taken traditional theaters as a place to present their performances to the public.
The book also includes follow-ups to plays that have been presented to pioneers and speakers at local theater festivals through an analytical view of the depth of experience, starting with exercises for performing with audiences, addressing the names and performances of the ruler of Sharjah, Sheikh Dr. And Ismail Abdullah, Jamal Matar, Salem Al-Hatawi, Abdullah Saleh, Saleh Karama and Basema Younes, who are names who “put Emirati theater at the forefront of Arab theater experiences and won valuable awards for this”.
