Running as part of Dublin Fringe Festival 2017, Saharcasm will explore the subjects of Irishism, Arabism and racism through the medium of poetry, music and comedy.
Running from September 15-17, with performances at 20:45 in Smock Alley Theatre Boys School and a matinee on September 17 at 14:15, this is one theatre experience not to miss!
The show which stars Sahar Ali and is being directed by theare maker Vicky Curtis (Finem Respice) looks set to take Fringe-goers on a journey that will “examine the multicultural world we live in”.
The Fringe programme gives some more info about the show:
“Your English is so good.” “Where are you REALLY from?” “Is your hair real?” You probably won’t find the answers to these questions in Saharcasm, a one woman show exploring the Irishism, Arabism and racism that provokes queries like these.
Through poetry, music and comedy, Sahar Ali introduces us to a variety of caricatures which examine the multicultural world we live in. Sussing out the differences and similarities between here and “out foreign”.
It’s easy to overlook the preconceptions that people in Ireland hold, but Saharcasm will likely make you reconsider.
Sahar Ali brings a fresh perspective to the view of modern Ireland that so many people subconsciously hold.
In Saharcasm, you can expect Ali to take examples from everyday life and, using her irresistible sense of humour, tackle issues of race and identity.
Sahar Ali has sold out shows in Forbidden Fruit and the Vodafone Comedy Festival and is a regular favourite in Whelans “Pop The Cherry” nights. She is considered one of the freshest talents on the Dublin comedy circuit.
Tickets for Saharcasm are getting snapped up quickly, with Friday’s performance already sold out. Tickets can be purchased from the Fringe Festival website here.
Saharcasm ruins in Smock Alley from 16-17th September at 20:45 (additional show on 17th September at 14:15.) Previews- 15th September at 20:45. Tickets €14/ €12 conc.
