Nubian Stories

by Nabra Nelson & Mona Sherif Nelson
directed by Lia Fakhouri 

featuring Ifrah Mansour as Sabila, and Hanna Eady on the oud

Produced by Dunya Productions

Sabila, a Nubian woman who was forcibly relocated from her village in the south of Egypt due to its intentional flooding for the construction of the Aswan High Dam, tells the story of her people through her own incredible biography as well as through the ancient Nubian folkloric tales she grew up with. Based on a true story, NUBIAN STORIES is a play about loss and legacy set simultaneously in the past and present. It transports us to the village for a brief moment and makes us realize how far we are from a not-so-distant history that is being erased.

This production is supported by 4Culture

50% of ticket proceeds go to the Nubian Foundation for Preserving a Cultural Heritage to provide direct aid to Nubian communities in Egypt
