In these pages you will hopefully find interesting tips on how to take advantage of Cairo's many cultural opportunities, with particular attention to live events. Cairo Live Events Guide does not pretend to be exhaustive but will try to cover main events open to the public.

This is a private, independent, nonprofit endeavour. This blog was started in August 2008 by Cairowanderer who has been running it solo up to May 2011. Since then Cairene Beat contributes as well to the blog. If you have any comment, tip, or information you think might be relevant for the blog, please write to or

"Whilst closely gazing at the soup" after Bern comes to the Rawabet Theatre

Whilst closely gazing at the soup...”, after hitting the Swiss scenes with performances at the Dampfzentrale in Bern on February 10, 11 and 12 will come to the Rawabet Theatre in Cairo on February 29 and March 1 and 2, 2012.

The project is a collaboration of Karima Mansour (choreographer, Cairo), Daria Gusberti (choreographer, Bern) and Maia Gusberti (visual artist, Bern). They work together with Laila Soliman (director, Cairo) and Mahmoud Refat (musician, Cairo).

In this project images and expectations are respectively created while two beings emerge, are reflected on a mirror and detach from one another. By changing views and expectations new relations are created between the performers themselves, between them and the public and between the performers and the emerging images.
The Self is projected on to the other, the other is reflected on to the self: thus creating various impressions. Different perspectives emerge and expectations arise... A joint never-ending creation of an intricate web of images, a constant shift of sources and questions, within confronting moments of blindness and vision. Forcing us to wonder: “Do you see what I see...”
