About Niqabi Ninja

A graphic-novel style revenge story about one woman’s transformation into a Cairene vigilante, as she attempts to right the wrongs of the male violence she sees all around her.

The show will be experienced through headphones and will involve following a designated walking route starting and ending at Tramway.
Timeslots available on 12th-14th, 19th-21st and 26th-28th August

Combining street artwork, audio-story performance and a walk through your city, you are invited to immerse yourselves in Hana’s world. Searing with dark comedy, this is a fearless reflection on the lengths women are willing to go to keep themselves and others safe.

Intimate, visceral and pulsating with a soundtrack to inspire your own resistance against gendered and state violence, this will be an intimate performance to be experienced in pairs or small groups.

Originally written in reaction to the 2012-2014 mob sexual assaults in Tahrir Square, this is a story about rape culture and male violence, a violence that operates everywhere and isn't limited to one part of the world.

Niqabi Ninja will be presented simultaneously in 5 locations across Scotland - Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness. We want this collective experience to offer the space for audiences to think about what it means to walk in public space without fear.

Run time 1hr 15 mins (BSL version 1hr 45m)

Content warning:
References to rape / sexual violence
Recommended for ages 16+

We understand that the content and form of this work could be triggering for people.

Whilst we invite people who encounter male and misogynistic violence to experience what we have made (including but not exclusive to women, trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming people), we understand if you choose not to. In fact we especially encourage those for whom this is not a daily threat to engage with this performance.
