Writer Sara Shaarawi and director Catrin Evans present an experiential performance in reaction to recent mob assaults in Cairo’s Tahrir Square.
Combining street artwork, audio-story performance and a walk through your city, Niqabi Ninja is a graphic-novel style revenge story written in reaction to the 2012–2014 mob sexual assaults in Tahrir Square, Cairo.
Intimate, visceral and pulsating with a soundtrack to inspire your own resistance against gendered and state violence, this is a fearless, darkly comic reflection on the lengths Hana will go to, to keep herself and other women safe.
An intimate performance to be experienced in pairs or small groups.
Presented simultaneously in five locations across Scotland, this is a collective experience offering the space to think about what it means to walk in public without fear.
