This month, Swiss dancer Nicolas Cantillon (company 7273) is back in Cairo, to continue the second workshop in the long term program started in April, in collaboration with Cairo Contemporary Dance Center (CCDC), contributing to the professional development of 30 young dancers and the development of practice in contemporary dance by dancers and choreographers.
The program was developed by company 7273 and CCDC especially for the full-time dance school students to ensure coherence and relevance to the professional training they attend at CCDC. It will last for two years including workshops and public performances.
This time, Cantillon is also holding a workshop for the public to introduce them to the Multi Style FuittFuitt.
“Multi Styles FuittFuitt” is a dance that requires of the interpreter a constant, permanent, and deep internal reflection. Forms are brought to the surface that become the foundation of the dance. FuittFuitt is about unfolding an endless movement that is drawn by ornaments and created with a dedication to precision, ultimately leading the dancer to forget the limitations of the body, thus leading them to experience the intoxicating joy that comes with a release from consciousness.
