My research project experiments with Arabic oral and dramatic traditions as forms of subjugated knowledges and sites of political disputation. This experimentation navigates beyond interest in Arabic discursive, literary and textual genres towards staging the embodied, enacted and ephemeral in relation to ways of thinking about politics and political subjectivity. Over the course of the project I aim to introduce the genre of ḥikāya (tale in Arabic) and the figure of the ḥakawāti (teller of tales) to interrogate how tragedy and comedy became the two constitutive genres of theatre; to trace how enduring renaissance understandings of folly become complicit in colonizing the fool as a universal figure; and experimenting with different "tellings" of the festival of ‘Ashura as a political tragedy (as opposed to the usual "readings" of classic Greek tragedies).
