7 wonders, 7 seas, 7 continents, 7 layers of atmosphere, and 7th year of D-CAF. D-CAF’s 7th edition is its biggest and most important edition so far, making us wonder about the obscure nature behind the number 7. Is it coincidence? Is it magic? Is it cosmic powers?
We could only hence that D-CAF made a pact with ‘you know who’ -actually we don’t know who exactly, there are too many now!- to come up with its most magical edition ever, with a lineup of hundreds of talented artists from 18 countries starring in more than 50 unique performances.
On its 7th edition D-CAF welcomes back Arab Arts Focus AAF, after joining Edinburgh Festival Fringe, with an immense line-up of 17 performances. Possession, Carnivorous, Shapers, and Flying Noon, all of these seem to be witchcraft work, but they are actually a part of AAF performances for this edition.
The opening concert promises to bewitch us with charming and talented music divas from all over the globe, each with their own unique style, and genre. From behind the scenes, we’re in for a major surprise!
The old downtown venues, which emerged from the ashes, restoring their beauty, haunt us every-time we visit them. This year’s, we’re thirsty for more revamped venues, and D-CAF is ready to quench our thirst.
We’ve talked about this year’s concept, but the jaw-dropping concept made us have just one question on our mind: What kind of sorcery is this?! To be able to transform one of Cairo’s Downtown most iconic squares, Talaat Harb, into this futuristic vision, is something out of this world.
D-CAF put a spell on us, binding us their marvelous selections for 3 weeks, and we don’t even want to escape it.
Are you ready for magic? I hope I had Hermione’s Time Turner, to skip time until March 8th, and then repeat this period from March 8th until March 29th over and over again to stay in eternal amusement!
