El Attar is the founder and artistic director of the Studio Emad Eddin (SEE) Foundation, which offers rehearsal, training and performance spaces to independent artists. His work as a theater director, producer and playwright has been performed throughout the Middle East and Europe. The SEE Foundation is currently expanding from a single rehearsal and training space with one venue to an institution with two rehearsal and training venues, a 225-seat theater and an annual multidisciplinary festival.
