Welcome to D-CAF’s 7th edition! The strongest, richest, and most magical edition!


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.

What kind of sorcery is that?

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!

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.

This performance features a documentary made in the year 2045, where political conflicts have changed the world to a degree that only memories of #art remain. Youness Atbane looks back at the dynamics of contemporary Moroccan art and takes the audience to an ambiguous space between reality and fiction.
