Projekt Shaeirat

Shaeirat – Bilingual performances by contemporary Arab women poets

ADAM has a development partnership with SHAEIRAT PROJECT that is currently collectively run by Soukaina Habiballah, Carol Sansour in collaboration with Henri Jules Julien.

SHAEIRAT PROJECT was inaugurated at Festival d’Avignon 2022 with a program of 4 performances. It will be present on the 29th of October 2022 at the seventh edition of the Arab Arts Focus showcase as part of Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF) in Cairo.

SHAEIRAT PROJECT will tour in Europe in March to May 2023, and is looking to do the same in North Africa (Egypt and Morocco) through developing the first festivals of performing Arabic poetry in the fall of 2023. For that purpose, ADAM together with SHAEIRAT PROJECT is collaborating with Arab poetesses, artists and musicians to broaden its initial program of 4 poetesses, and is aspiring to establish a regional and international network of partners who are open to hosting those performances.
