The Urban Visions program brings performing arts to public and alternative spaces across Downtown. These events aim to engage and challenge the audience through outdoor acts that refuse to put a ceiling on their ambitions. The list for this year’s urban visions program will be as tantalizing as it is varied. For that, we’ve decided to do something that we’ve never done before to give the program its due worth: This year, we’ve collaborated with Archinos to delve out of Downtown Cairo for performances in the legendary Qaitbay Complex in the City of Dead. UK-based Stopgap Dance Company will deliver an exhilarating performance featuring disabled and non-disabled dancers side by side. Holland-based dancer and choreograph, Joop Oonk, will bring his similarly engaging act to the streets of Cairo, while award-winning Hungarian puppeteer, Bence Sarkadi, will delight festival-goers with his one-of-a-kind show.
