@Abu Salim


Friday 25 March 2022 from 8pm to 10pm

A wild, gender-bending, Arabic infused, comedy mash-up drawing on slapstick, clowning, satire and a healthy dose of drag king.

An Arab-Australian barber and father living in Fairfield, who moonlights as a poet in Newtown to connect with his inner artist.

Written and performed by Randa Sayed, directed by Shy Magsalin, assistant director Karliea Decker, creative associate Phil Spencer and produced by Ayeesha Ash.

This performance contains strobe lighting, bad 'Lebbo' words and possibly some infidelity.

About the artist

Randa Sayed is a Lebanese Australian Muslim writer and performer from Western Sydney who creates theatre and film that expands the possibility of cultural storytelling in Australia and beyond. Randa tells stories that are difficult to tell in entertaining and authentic ways, creating work that invites audiences into mostly private cultural spaces offering them space to be a part of the narrative. Randa does this work because she believes in inclusivity, freedom of expression and positive cultural and social change.
