‘This house is virtuous and will always remain virtuous’ with Dr. Samaher

Online Performance

Saturday, March 27, 2021, 2:00 pm

In conjunction with Queer-y-ing the Arab

Famous for her Xanax and wine readings, Dr. Samaher is hailed from the sandy lands of Aladdina & ja’afarina.
The Dr. will show you her white hair and the trop tards tartar of a life we are having. She will blend tarot readings with scenes from Egyptian movies about belly dancers, how they are desired yet pushed away from the social acceptance.

Rima Najdi will be joined by the Earl of Bushwick for a post-performance conversation.

Rima Najdi is a Berlin-based performance artist. Her work occupies and (re)negotiates in-between spaces. She grapples with the ways in which identity is constructed and perceived, focusing on the lived experience of the body. She is interested in the vulnerability of the body in relation to the politicized tropes of gender, safety, mobility and representation. In action or as artefact, her work politicizes the self, the body and the emotions as a starting point to recast the act of self-imagining.
