In 2014, BuSSy teamed up with Egyptian advocacy organization "Nazra for Feminist Studies" for a performance series entitled "3ash ya wa7sh/I’m the man”--a performance that delves into the theme of masculinity from a feminist perspective.
In the storytelling performance I have played several characters, some of them were girls and some were guys.
Character 1: Bully on the street
An annoying guy, who hangs out on the street in front of a building and bullies Sherif, a guy who lives there.
Character 2: Myself
A girl who faces troubles with her parents, when she tells them about her decision of moving out.
Character 3: Salma
A girl who faces trouble in the subway, after a guy refuses to go off the women-only car. Salma also deals with her brother's oppression of denying her to fly on a work trip, only because she is a female.
Character 4: Sarah's Mom
After Sarah tells her mom about her sexual desiers, Sarah's mom responds, that she too was young and had desires, that she had to get rid off by taking cold showers and playing sports.
Character 5: Radwa
A 30 year old girl, who's facing some problems in the Egyptian society just because she's a girl.
Character 6: Nermin
A girl who tells her stories about street sexual harassment and domestic violence.
Character 7: Salma's Brother
BuSSy is a performing arts project that documents and gives voice to censored untold stories about gender in different communities in Egypt.
