Born Sara El Messiry, the neo-soulful Egyptian artist who goes by Felukah will hit the stage at the B7L9 Art Station on Oct. 15 to serenade guests with her genre-bending songs. Audiences can expect to hear some of the New York-based artist’s biggest hits such as Ask the Birds in Cairo, Mrs. Smooth, and Say Hi To My Demons


Waiting for Godot is a play by Samuel Beckett in which two characters, Vladimir and Estragon, engage in a variety of discussions and encounters while awaiting the titular Godot, who never arrives. Tunisian comedian Aymen Mejri’s Godot is a silent play (no pun intended) on Beckett’s classic work. In Mejri’s surrealist performance, he puts himself in Godot’s shoes. The play will be performed live on Oct. 15.
