"You & Me"
At 8:00 pm
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Pro Helvetia Cairo, and the Silver Jubilee of the Cairo International Festival for Contemporary and Experimental Theater (CIFCE), the Festival has announced Switzerland as the guest of honor. Therefore, we have decided to celebrate together with the Festival and the Swiss Embassy in Cairo, featuring “You & Me” performance for Mummenschanz troupe in the opening night.
On September 10, 2018, the audience will enjoy the performance “You & Me” of the Mummenschanz troupe. a troupe that is often described as “musicians of silence.” They are a great example of how art can have an impact even without verbal exchange or music.
For over four decades, MUMMENSCHANZ has inspired audiences around the world with their wordless but extremely poetic art. Since December 2016 the troupe tours with this new program created by the founding member Floriana Frassetto, who will be honored at the Festival’s opening night. And MUMMENSCHANZ is at the same time rejuvenating itself with young Swiss artists.
