  • In the imaginary realm of the KickQueens, Malak Alawye breaks time’s cyclicality when she hits an armed man in the crotch. She takes Lebanon out of its traumatic loop and into a linear dimension where progress is possible.
    KickQueen (2020) is a semi-fictional, semi-factual reflection on the icon of the October 2019 uprisings in Beirut. It is a magic potion against forgetting. It asks us to remember what it means to kick an armed man in the crotch and how this gesture might live in an embodied collective.
