Rawabet Space for Performing Arts
3 Hussain El Me3mar Street

Lessons in Revolting is a performance made by a group of Egyptian activist-artists who want to rewrite their recent history through images, movement, testimonies and sounds.Scenes are created from their most personal perspectives.The purpose is not only to document or reminisce, but to share and reflect with an audience, a work of contemporary and political art.
Ruud Gielens and Laila Soliman, bring together a team of versatile Egyptian artists and activists to make a performance that does not only want to talk about what started on Tahrir square at the beginning of 2011, but that mainly wants to react to what is happening now in Cairo, because this revolution is far from over.
