Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east



Unspoken Thoughts

Reham abd El Razek / Mutiny Group

This production by three Egyptian women – a dancer, an actress and a singer – examines the role of women in Arab society. They describe it as ‘a world full of contradictions, mystery and psychology’, and in the performance they attempt to decode its symbols, and to reveal its secrets and social and religious taboos. Breaking with all clichés, the performance brings these subjects to the stage in a refreshing, ironic and sometimes very humorous manner.

Unspoken Thoughts won the award for Best Ensemble Work in the Cairo International Festival for Experimental Theatre in 2007 and has been performed at the Journees Theatrales de Carthage in Tunisia.
