Wael Salem

Wael Salem studied Theatrical studies at the Institute of Dramatic Art in Damascus and completed a master’s degree in Theatre-pedagogy from the UDK in Berlin. In 2019 he staged the play “Reading Between Faces” at the tak Theater Aufbau Kreuzberg, which examined the concept of happiness with a diverse group of Arabic-speaking non-professional-actors. He led several workshops with young people and adults.

He published several articles on culture, theater, and the Syrian diaspora, as well a peer-reviewed research report entitled “The Evolution of the TV Series Industry in Syria”.

With a group of Syrian artists, he founded “SILA for Cultural Work”, a new cultural collective that focuses on working with non-professional-participants from the Syrian diaspora to do art and theater together.

Wael is the author of several theater texts. He is also active as a cultural researcher and as a translator of theater plays into Arabic.
