Soukaïna Bennani

All the voices she speaks

Inspired by the solo exhibition of British artist Helen Cammock, Soukaïna Bennani presents the performance All the voices she speaks.

Bennani's performance can be understood as a response to the work Chorus I - Che si può fare, in which Cammock explores the power of lamentation through several interviews with women. To the tones of Roberta Mameli - Madrigals, book 8, Bennani's poem explores her own position as a woman in familial, religious, cultural and social contexts.

Soukaïna Bennani
(1995, Hoboken)

Soukaïna Bennani is a spoken word artist, host and organizer. Sometimes socially obsessed, sometimes a sucker for love, but always a poet with her heart on her sleeve. In 2015, she made her first contribution to theater piece Fi Manzili, a poetic narrative about the suffering of a Palestinian family. Since then, she has flitted from one stage to another. In 2016, for example, she secured a spot in the finals of the spoken word contest Naft for Word, an initiative of Creative Writing asbl, and in 2017 she wrote "We are going to see the woman," a poem published in "Intimate Revolutions" in 2021. Since 2019, Bennani has been the mother of ‘Pillow Talk', a warm and intimate spoken word event for fellow poets. Soukaïna would rather you hear her poetry than read it. Her writing is a gift. To stir up emotions you'd momentarily forgotten you had. She writes and shares to move you. She strives to give you goosebumps.
