Hijabi Monologues London
Hijabi Monologues London was part of an international project focusing on the real-life experiences of both local and international Muslim women. Our project culminated in a production at the Bush Theatre in September 2017, which featured stories from our doorstep as well as experiences of Muslim women in other parts of the world.
Members of the community got involved in lots of ways, from penning a play to performing on stage, to coming along to support.
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR MADANI YOUNIS SAID OF THE AUTUMN WINTER 2017 SEASON:
‘As ever at the Bush Theatre, we continue to seek powerful plays that respond to the urgency of the world around us.
London is still reverberating from events that have made us question what community is and what our city means to us. As such, this building continues to speak up for the unheard and celebrate their voices. This year we have brought international movements into our local community with the powerful Black Lives, Black Words back in March and the upcoming Hijabi Monologues London. The latter will feature over 10 new works gathered from Muslim women both locally in Shepherd’s Bush and further afield from different parts of the world.’
