The first PASS was held in Birzeit in partnership with the Royal Flemish Theatre between 31 July - 23 August 2007. 16 young participants were chosen from across the West Bank and pre-1948 occupied Palestine, who share an interest in the performing arts, whether theatre, dance, circus, singing, etc. In the first two weeks the focus was on an exploration of modern dance and drama, and giving participantsthe skills to help create new performance pieces.
In week three the focus was on idea building and dramaturgy, while participants also developed their individual projects. The course was supervised by dramaturge Hildegard de Vuyst, playwright and director Bart Danckaert, dancer RosalbaTorres Guerrero, choreographer KoenAugustijnen, actor Joris Van den Brande, and Palestinian director Francois Abu Salem.
