The Cairo International Festival for Contemporary and Experimental Theatre (CIFCET) was founded in 1988 as Cairo International Festival for Experimental Theatre. After it concluded its twenty-second edition in 2010 it was suspended/adjourned in 2011 until 2015.
The festival is back! From 20th to 30th September, 2016.
This year a large number of Arab and international theatre companies are participating, in addition to a long list of Egyptian productions. The festival includes six workshops led by major international artists from Chile, USA, Pakistan and India.
There will also be four major panels focusing on Arab theatre and the West scheduled on the Fringe.
In early 2005, I was invited to write a new script for performance at The Wereld Muziek Theatre Festival. In 2006 KigeziNdoto, the product of three-months writing and rehearsal, toured Holland, Belgium and Italy; the show is a musical performance celebrating African heroes and providing an African perspective on Kenyan history.
KigeziNdoto: A Hook for Dreams is the second part of a trilogy, which includes The Voice of a Dream and They Call Me Wanjikũ. The performers examine the dreams of East Africans through music, dance and story, looking at pre- and post-colonial history and the lessons that might be learned today from our past.
