‘Perhaps Here’ explores the orbits of contemporary imagination through a variety of live performances. Borrowing its title from Khulood Al Mualla's fourth book of poetry, this event will feature artists from diverse disciplines who will share their works with the public. In line with the book’s title in Arabic, ‘Rubbama Huna’, that could be interpreted as ‘something may be here’, ‘Perhaps Here’ invites audiences to experience something that could either be intellectual, emotional or aesthetical in nature.

Over a period of three days, 16 artists from diverse disciplines will occupy the rooms of Bait Al Serkal—the nineteenth-century heritage house near the port in the centre of Sharjah’s historic neighbourhood—to showcase their work.

Theatre makers, contemporary dancers, and installation and video artists as well as poets and writers will be performing their works simultaneously on repeat throughout the evening in a marathon of artistic productions. Audience members can select three short shows [20 minutes each] to attend per night.
