Synopsis


ARABITCH is a semi-autobiographical show that explores the relationship between LGBTQ+ and Arab cultural identities.


Through Drag, spoken word and cabaret we meet ARABITCH, aka Sara, as she weighs up the decision to come out to her conservative Iraqi mother; meeting mentors along the way (like Abu Nuwas, a dead queer Iraqi poet) and enemies (casually racist twinks at G-A-Y).


The show asks questions about racism in the LGBTQ+ community and the homophobia in Arab communities and how both these inform the experiences of people who identify as both.


In short, ARABITCH is a show about finding community, consolidating conflicting identities, and looking to oneself for acceptance and validation.
