Story 2: 'Hurricane'
Written by Sahar Ullah
Performed by Kamilah Pickett

The performance includes 12 stories and two introductions.

The Hijabi Monologues originated in the US and is about creating a theatre space for Muslim women's stories; a space to breathe as they are; a space that does not claim to tell every story and speak for every voice. The stories go beyond the much debated hijab, and present a deeper journey where claims are challenged and stereotypes confronted'.
