Performed and choreographed by Eman Hussein, in collaboration with sound designer Youssra El Hawary, Smell of Cement demonstrates that working with the body goes beyond merely pain and sweat. Construction workers are not insured for their bodies at work; they suffer from being away from their families, which affects their bodies. Like them, dancers also test physical pain, working with the repetition of movement. They often don’t have insurance because salaries are neither high nor stable. Like workers, they embody the constant movement of bodies in space.
