In the midst of a department store, the artists are seeking to establish a physical dialogue between the trade gesture and the artistic gesture. The artistic act becomes a symbol, for a short moment, a moment of sharing, a need to exist and a sustenance. A personal experience without prices or profit, to measure and to estimate by ourself.
Nassim el Raqs festival in Alexandria invited the Austrian choreographer Christian Ubl to create a site-specific performance with the students of the Cairo Contemporary Dance Center and two musicians, Khaled Kaddal and Zakaria El Eskanderani. The outcome will be premiered in D-CAF festival.
Nassim el Raqs is designed and produced by Centre Rézodanse – Egypte (Alexandria) and Momkin – espaces de possibles (Marseilles). How much would you like to pay for? is coproduced by the Austrian Cultural Forum / the Austrian Ambassy in Cairo
