Egypt’s Ministry of Culture is launching its 27th edition of the Cairo International Festival for Experimental Theatre (CIFET) online this September.

Organized by the Ministry of Culture, the festival’s new management decided to hold this year’s edition online for the very first time, in light of the current situation caused by the pandemic.

The move was taken to ensure the health and safety of the participants and visitors. 

Last year, the festival witnessed participation from 40 countries, with around 22 productions presented during the festival. The 2019 edition took place at various theatres in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

The main competition saw performances from around the world, including the US, Brazil, Switzerland, Kosovo, Portugal, Hungary, Morocco, Kuwait, Tunisia, Iraq, Syria, South Africa, Nigeria, and Congo.

The festival will be headed by Alaa Abdel Aziz Suleiman, a young theatre maker who adds so much to the edition from noticeable changes and adjustments.

According to Suleiman, the deadline for application forms from the teams wishing to participate in the festival is on August 10th. The festival administration confirmed that the ongoing pandemic has posed challenges for theatrical practices, whether on the production side or in presenting the works themselves.

“The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts presents Treasures of Ancient Egypt: Sunken Cities. The exhibition is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see treasures recovered from two powerful ancient Egyptian cities that sank into the Mediterranean more than a thousand years ago.” The official website of the museum wrote about the exhibition.

“This exhibition features a staggering array of objects from these excavations, supplemented by treasures from museums across Egypt. The objects on view piece together the economic and cultural significance of these destroyed city centers and showcase the artistry, religious practices, and traditions of their people.” It added.

Treasures of Ancient Egypt: Sunken Cities is organized by the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology with the generous support of the Hilti Foundation and in collaboration with the Ministry of Antiquities of the Arab Republic of Egypt.
