Lila Tahar Amar
Lila Tahar Amar developed a passion for acting when her parents signed her up for children’s theater, where she loved being able to imagine herself as different characters. She joined the troupe Nomads in 2004, acting in the musical comedy The Prince of Corsaire (by Francis Alfred Moerman) under the direction of Bouamer Yakhlef. She acted in a bilingual production of Alloula’s Djelloul Lefhaymi and, with Istijmam, in L’Astuce and Yadra! Since 2009, Lila has been Istijmam’s general manager and booking agent. She booked the troupe’s tour of Et-Teffeh in North Africa from 2009 to 2011, and she has represented Algeria in numerous intercultural exchanges with troupes in France, Germany, Sweden, Iraq, and the United States. Lila holds degrees in Spanish language and literature and business management.
