ARAB WOMEN TELL IT LIKE IT IS
Razor Sharp brings together three of London’s foremost Arab women writing for the stage today: Hannah Khalil,Yamina Bakiri and Malu Halasa. Myself and Jumaan will be bringing their writings. to life.
Collaborating with an Arab cast, and responding to current affairs with satire and humour, this new writing tackles topics ranging from the emergence of a new breed of Arab protester, the long wait for a president in America and Palestine, and a failed film project in Syria. The show is entirely written, directed, produced and acted by Arab women of the theatre industry.
I am super psyched to be part of this!

The Speed Sisters film is now being screened at all good film festivals. The first all-women race car driving team in the Middle East. They’re bold. They’re fearless. And they’re tearing up tracks all over Palestine. Proud from my song Bubble Gum to feature in the trailer and the film.
