Dancing on the Edge, El Takeiba Center for Artistic and Cultural Development

The Tandem/Shaml program encourages cultural managers from across Europe and neighboring non-European countries to co-develop creative and cultural productions linked to their expertise as cultural professionals. Dancing on the Edge was chosen in an edition where Arab countries in the Mediterranean region were involved.

Dancing on the Edge and El Takeiba Center devoloped a project called (Framing) Revolution. This project aimed to reflect the situation two years after the start of the Egyptian Revolution and asked if after hope, despair as well as disillusion, it is now perhaps time for an inner revolution.
Research took place among people in The Netherlands and in Egypt, and the results of this project and process are presented in three different ways: a film installation called A Smashed Paradise, an interactive film installation named REVO-ثوره , and lastly a ‘wall’ of graffiti, which resulted from a number of workshops in Cairo.The Tandem/Shaml  programme encourages cultural managers from across Europe and neighboring non-Europe countries to co-develop creative and cultural productions linked to their expertise as cultural professionals.
