Yara El-Sherbini: University Challenge


Universality Challenge is a game show which playfully explores universal experiences; examining those all-important questions that shape our view of the world, like 'Is happiness a cigar called Hamlet?' 'What colour is Michael Jackson?' And, 'Do they drink Um Bongo in the Congo?'

Using the recognisable format of the classic British TV show 'University Challenge', participants went head to head in a battle to win the title of 'Loughborough Universality Challenge', in front of a live audience. The quiz show brought together a University team versus a local team, with Yara as host, sought to challenge universality, asking is what's good for the goose, good for the gander?

Yara El-Sherbini is London based artist. Her inter-disciplinary work uses site, context and audience to playfully explore art and life. From hosting pub quizzes to stand-up in comedy venues, she uses humour and popular culture to engage her viewers. Universality Challenge was first commissioned and produced by Chelsea Theatre, London. Universality Challenge is managed by Artsadmin.
