Exchange ideas about writing within the contemporary theatrical canon and within the Arabic MENA region.
Amahl Khouri and Sara Shaarawi are two prominent writers about theatre. Sara Shaarawi is an Egyptian writer and performer who is primarily active in the UK. Amahl Khouri is a queer and trans mestizo/mestiza, a documentary theatre maker from Jordan.
In this reading group session, they exchange ideas about writing within the contemporary theatrical canon and within the Arabic MENA region. Both authors read fragments from their respective work, from He Me by Amahl and Niqabi Ninja by Sara. This is followed by a conversation about writing, theatre and feminism. Moderated by curator Nedjma Hadj Benchelabi.
