Adham Hafez, choreographer and music composer, and painter Nihal Whaby speak about the art scene in Egypt.
ARC.HIVE, a research centre on performing arts will open next September in Cairo.
“None of these pieces have ever been seen in Egypt, or anywhere in the Arab speaking world, we only know the outcome of the change they initiated. By asking Cuena to reenact some of the famous pieces the audience got to experience a live performed trip through history.”
Open Your Bags, Please is a series of interviews where the audience is invited to participate and ask the choreographers anything they would like to know, “even if it is as simple as ‘why did you wear that costume in your last show?'” said Hafez.
Hafez said the objective of the festival is to explore how we take part in documenting a moment in history, a place in the world or a personal reality in such a hyper-documented reality.
