D-CAF - Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival

Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF) is Egypt’s first international multi-disciplinary contemporary arts festival. The 6th edition of D-CAF (#DCAF17) will take place over three weeks from the 17th of March to the 8th of April 2017 at multiple sites in Downtown Cairo. D-CAF will include local, regional and international music, theatre, dance, visual arts and film by cutting-edge artists from Egypt, the Arab world, and beyond. In addition to featuring established Downtown cultural spaces and theatres, D-CAF uses non-traditional sites such as historical buildings, storefronts, alleyways, and rooftops as sites for performances, events, and arts installations, with the aim of bringing audiences and performers to engage with the city in a new way. With its diverse and first-rate programming, D-CAF aspires to become one of the most important annual Arab art events by reaching out to a broad spectrum of Egyptian audiences, creating bridges between Arab artists, international curators and programmers, as well as capitalising on Downtown Cairo’s unique cultural, social and architectural heritage. Furthermore, the D-CAF team seeks not just to bring the best in international contemporary culture to Cairo, but also to deliver a highly professional and well-publicised international festival.

A project by D-CAF Festival (Cairo) in collaboration with Tamasi collective for the performing arts #AAF2017 will be a part of, Edinburgh Festival Fringe the world's largest Arts festival.

Considering this dire need for mutual understanding through artistic exchange, The Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF) began the biennial performance program, the Arab Arts Focus (AAF) in 2014.
The event invites producers and programmers from all over the world to experience a dense programme of the best in contemporary Arab theatre and performance.

The AAF was conceived with the objective of supporting the development of the arts sector in the Arab world by providing artists from the region the opportunity to showcase their work to an international audience of industry professionals.

The previous success of the program over the past two editions (in 2016 and 2014) inspired us to attempt this initiative on a larger scale, and to deliver the AAF on an international stage. So came the idea of AAF @ Edinburgh 2017

Follow AAF- Arab Arts Focus to know more about the Programme.
