Up on the Roof - Open Stage Night

The "Open Stage Night" takes place at the rooftop (weather-permitting!) of Darb 1718 on the first Thursday of every month.

The next event is on Thursday July 7, 2011 from 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM.

Up on the Roof is an Arts Residency Cairo (ARC) event in association with Darb 1718. It is a platform for both amateurs and pros to showcase their talents in music, poetry, stand-up comedy, storytelling and dance in a supportive atmosphere. Performances last 7 minutes and can be in either Arabic or English.

People interested in performing need to contact Linda Cleary ahead of time:

Donation of 10 LE on entrance.
