Swiss dancer and choreographer Nicole Seiler is back in Cairo to present a new edition of her performance “Living-room dancers” as part of the Breaking Walls Festival.

Dance is their passion; they dedicate a good deal of their free time to it. “They” are the protagonists of Living-room dancers, creation in the form of a choreographic walk through the city. Encountered through an audition held by Nicole Seiler in Cairo for two days, these passionate individuals practice tap-dancing, electro, salsa, Argentine tango, expressive dance, samba and even pole dancing.

“Living-room dancers” was designed and performed for the first time in 2008, and since then, Seiler has been developing the concept and making various editions of the performance depending on the place and the city. This is a first time and one of kind experience, especially for Breaking Walls Festival, for which Nicole Seiler is creating a felucca edition of the Living-room dancers’ performance.

The audience members are taken on an audio-guided tour on the Nile on which it will observe these dancers from a distance and listen to their stories related to their passion.
