A “sexy” Islamic clown show.
Randa Sayed takes you on an experimental, provocative and raw journey in Experience & the Girl.
The Girl, a young Arab Muslim woman, finds herself in love with a stranger at a theatre show.
What starts out as a small seed of doubt about her chosen way of life develops into a pit of confusion. The Girl is prompted to explore her sexuality and question her Islamic beliefs. So she turns to the only friend – and enabler – she can rely on: the Internet.
The Girl researches how to be better, more attractive, noticeable and fierce, and before she knows it, she’s becoming just like her secret idol: Beyoncé.
WARNING: This piece contains a level of audience participation and improvisation, with some sexual scenes (with or without tongue, depending on how you’re feeling that night), mild drug use and experts on the Qur’an.
