a modular program
of bilingual performances
by contemporary Arab women poets
SHAEIRAT PROJECT (مشروع الشاعرات / shaeirat = poetesses) ) is a collective art project seeking to promote, produce and stage Arab poetry performances by poetesses and poets themselves in the Arab world and globally. In addition to mixing (or not) the poetesses and poets stage presence and voices with other artistic mediums such as music, theatre and video, SHAEIRAT PROJECT intends to present performances bilingually.
SHAEIRAT PROJECT was inaugurated at Festival d’Avignon 2022 (in) with a program of 4 performances by Soukaina Habiballah, Rasha Omran, Carol Sansour and Asmaa Azaizeh, in collaboration with Henri jules Julien.
March to May 2023 : European tours (France & Swiss)
November and December 2023 : Egypt and Morocan tours
For that purpose, SHAEIRAT PROJECT is collaborating with Arab poetesses, intenational artists and musicians to broaden its initial program, and is aspiring to establish a regional and international network of partners who are open to hosting those performances.
