Up On The Roof - Open Stage Night at 9:00 PM.

Up on the Roof is an Arts Residency Cairo (ARC) event in association with Darb 1718. The bi monthly Open Stage Night is a creative platform for both established and emerging artists using either Arabic or English language.

Performances include live poetry, spoken word, stand-up comedy, narratives, music, script reading and dance. Each act will be a maximum of 7 minutes and at times a longer guest spot for an invited artist. This is a space to try out new material and take risks as well as present shaped work.

Donation of 10 LE on entrance

People interested in performing need to contact Linda Cleary:
But the list gets full very quick so you are invited to book ahead.
