Razor Sharp

  • 17 July 2015 4-10pm

Razor Sharp brings together three of London’s foremost Arab women writing for the stage today: Hannah Khalil, Yamina Bakiri and Malu Halasa.

Collaborating with the same cast, and responding to current affairs, Razor Sharp will present a series of three rehearsed readings. New material tackles topics ranging from the emergence of a new breed of protesters, fast-response sketches and a failed film project. A showcase of satire and gentle mocking from Arab women who are not afraid to put pen to paper and tell it like it is.

The evening performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with the writers.

Presented by Sandpit Arts

Meher Awachri performing D-Sisyphe


  • 18 — 19 July 2015 7:30-10pm

Award-winning Tunisian actor and director Meher Awachri performs a night in the life of Khmais, a Tunisian construction worker in the midst of an existential crisis.

Estranged from his family, exploited at work, and struggling with his faith, Khmais is based on the myth of Sisyphus as interpreted by Camus. A monologue (in Arabic with English subtitles) with contemporary dance and physical theatre, D-Sisyphe confronts topics of religion, revolution and individual will.

Having won first prize at the Thespis International Monodrama Festival, Germany, Meher Awachri has toured D-Sisyphe to critical acclaim all over Europe and North America. This is its UK premiere.

There will be a post-show discussion with Meher Awachri following the Saturday performance.

Produced for Shubbak by Arts Canteen.
Supported by the British Council and Arab Fund for Arts and Culture – AFAC.
