Created in response to the rise in hate crimes, Unveiled, is a powerful work about five women from different ethnic backgrounds whose stories are bound by the hijab, the traditional headscarf worn by Muslim woman as a symbol of modesty, deep devotion and sincere piety. It also provokes hostility and abuse from those blinded by Islamophobia. Rohina Malik tells each story, accompanied by a musician playing the oud, which subtly underscores and enhances Malik’s monologues.
Light snacks will be served after the performance.
