Egyptian artists Salma Saied and Sherine Hegazy are traveling this month to Basel, Switzerland. To continue working on the new version of the performance “Rose & Louise Feminist Manifesto”; a collaboration that they started along with Swiss artists Ariane Koch and Sarina Scheidegger earlier this year.
Ariane Koch and Sarina Scheidegger (text, directing) have been working on a joint performance practice since 2012, which generates scripts and scores through collective writing processes, which are then interpreted by performers. Most of their performances take place in art spaces and printed matter, and they refuse a pictorial documentation of their work.
A work in progress of the four artists was performed in Alexandria, last April, as part of Theater is a Must festival, and the final performance will take place at Kaserne Basel in October.
