Hoda Adra

Hoda Adra is a Lebanese interdisciplinary artist based in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal. Her work spans poetry, voice, drawing, and theatre, exploring gender apartheid and aborted oral histories, with a renewed inquiry around the politics of marginalization of female bodies undergoing a forced suppression of movement. Her 2017 spoken word album La liberté des sens traces her journey between Lebanon, Montréal, and Saudi Arabia where she was raised. In 2021, her translations of Palestinian oral history video archives, collected in Voices of the Nakba (Pluto Press, 2021), were granted the PEN Translates Award.
