Independent Arts Projects proudly announce a brand new production for 2021: NIQABI NINJA by Sara Shaarawi which will premiere as part of Shubbak Festival 2021 at ArtsAdmin/Toynbee Studios from 8-17 July 2021

Niqabi Ninja by Sara Shaarawi is an audio-led journey into the world of a Cairene vigilante. It is written by Sara Shaarawi, a playwright from Cairo who is now based in Glasgow. This new production is led by Director Catrin Evans and Associate Director Niroshini Thambar

Niqabi Ninja by Sara Shaarawi is 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. 
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. 

Niqabi Ninja by Sara Shaarawi is an Independent Arts Projects (Edinburgh) production in association with Hewar Company for Independent Theatre and Performing Arts (Alexandria). Co-commissioned by Shubbak Festival. Supported by Arts – British Council through a #DigitalCollaborationGrant & Creative Scotland.
