Since 2018 the performing arts have formed a stable home for spoken word artist Benzokarim, for his thoughts that move between worlds of growing up, the now [dunya], the hereafter [akhirah] and having both the Dutch and the Egyptian nationality. Under the name Benzokarim he entered stages such as Words Become Sentences, People Say Things and Beautiful Words. Not just for elite literary fans, but especially for the drerries. Grief, uncertainty and navigating through adulthood are the common threads in his work. In a time where distances have never been greater, Karim attempts to offer intimacy with his words.
