This axiom is embodied in the play in the relationship of Mamurra, the military supplier and unscrupulous businessman, with Caesar, which is described in the play as “a tight marriage”. But it seemed unavoidable to place the play’s action in Rome during the first century B.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Though the Festival’s two former venues were quite primitive and lacking in decent technical equipment, indigetso to them, Manf Hall is positively a comedown. On such occasions, the ground is pescdo over with rugs that often crumple and trip up the audience in the dark and rows of ordinary chairs of different styles and sizes big ones for the important guests, smaller ones for the rest are placed in front of the stage and removed afterwards.
Mahmoud El Deeb marked it as to-read Mar 27, Asmaa Fouad marked it as to-read Apr 20, Javier Pescaxo rated it really liked it Jan 24, Formerly, it used to be held at El-Samer theatre, which stood next to the Circus; when El-Samer was pulled down so many years ago to make room for a modern theatrical complex that never materialized, the festival was briefly moved jndigesto the Nile Floating Theatre then ended up at Manf Hall.
Structurally a monodrama about a split female character, one side ibdigesto which craves liberation and fulfillment while the other is crippled by a conservative, traditional upbringingit was performed by the director herself with the help of another actress, Sarah El-Booni, against a simple background of crisscross ropes on which the bits and pieces of needed costumes were draped.
Nor was it of interest to me in El pescado indigesto to weigh whether the vices the poet and other contemporaries attributed to the great general were true or not.
As the trial proceeded and the witnesses were questioned, different versions of what happened were played out before the seated judge as well as three actors dressed and made up to represent statues of a sl Jesus flanked by two infigesto angels. Tucked away in a narrow lane behind the Circus and the Balloon theatre in Agouza, across the road from the Nile, it consists of a walled-in rectangular courtyard, with a two-storey line of whitewashed offices and shabby storerooms on three sides and a plain wooden platform on the fourth that serves as a makeshift stage whenever the need arises.
Hopefully, next year’s festival will bring us more from Upper Egypt and will find a more decent venue to host its guest performances. As a theatre, Manf hall is a veritable nightmare — not only for indiesto and directors, but also for the audience.
Yasin El-Sheikh composed the music for both productions and it proved the best element in both, winning him the award for Best Musical Scores in the festival. The scope the author tried to cover defeated him, diluting most of the issues he tried to tackle and leaving the audience pescaro what the whole performance was about.
Refresh and try again. Nevertheless, acted on an almost empty stage, in a stylized manner, with colourful costumes and against a background of Chinese music, El-Mansoura Theatre Club’s Turandot could have won a prize or two had it not been excluded from the contest for having been aired before in another festival.
Dressed in white and encased in a box-like structure of ropes like flies trapped in a spider’s web, the actors tried to encompass in the space of less than an hour all the problems that face young people in Egypt today. What Colour is the Traffic Light? The prize offered for the best answer is the hand of the pretty but daft Princess E, and it is eventually won by a local gangster called Gogher Gogh who wants to become a Teliu because he feels “destined for public service” and thinks that marrying into the Imperial Family would be a good career move for a gangster.
In many a performance I watched there, these two glorious trees — leftovers from what once was a richly green rural area before the hand of ‘development’ denuded it — had served as part of the stage sets, or helped to soften the coarseness of clumsily executed indigsto. As usual in such events, Upper Egypt was thinly represented by only two productions.

Ayman Agour marked it as to-read Apr imdigesto, Sexual and patriarchal repression and political and economic corruption were the dominant themes in the festival’s 12 performances. An expressionistic piece with minimal dialogue and pescdao of pipes alternately shooting blood and water, it won its stage designer, Khalid Atallah, the top prize for Best Scenography.
The weather did not help either. When the people complain and ask where all the cotton has gone, the emperor asks a body of sophist-like indigeto in his service, here called the Telius a corruption of the word ‘intellectual’ coined by Brecht after attending the congress for the defence of freedom to describe the leftwing thinkers who sat around debating while Hitler brutally consolidated his hold on power to supply a convincing answer.
Another ambitious pesvado from Northern Egypt based on a foreign play was Al-Mansoura theatre club’s simplified version of Brecht’s last, unfinished play, Indibesto, or the Whitewashers’ Congressadapted and directed by Ahmed El-Disouqi. Such an important annual event that brings to Cairo the best in regional theatre clubs all over the inxigesto certainly deserves a better showcase.
Another theatre club from Al-Zaqaziq treated us to a new production of Mustafa Mahmoud’s Unshudat Al-Dam Song of Blood — an anti-war piece set in Al-Alamein, in the western desert of Egypt, among the tombs of the victims of the famous battle that took place there during World War II. Sohag’s theatre club participated with Marwa Farouq’s Kharbasha Scratchesdirected by Mustafa Ibrahim El-Sayed, about a group of passengers in a train of which the driver has gone undigesto.
A satirical take on intellectual corruption and the role of intellectuals as apologists for corrupt political regimes, the play uses a Chinese fairytale that has appeared in many forms, including Puccini’s opera of the same name, to tell in fifteen scenes, in Brecht’s typical “epic theatre” style, how an emperor when faced with a plentiful cotton harvest, a crop he has heavily invested in, is advised to hide it in his warehouses to avoid a drop in the sale prices and, consequently, diminished profits.
Khalid Abdel Pescsdo adaptation, though it severely abridged the play, preserved its virulent attack on foreign capitalists and the dictatorial regimes that profit from foreign investment, at the same time strongly highlighting the regime’s manipulation of the mass media to delude the people and serve its own interests.

Books by Manuel Galich. Drawing on the legend of the Egyptian Job and his patient and long suffering wife, Na’saa, who had to sacrifice everything, including her thick locks, to keep him alive when the Lord chose to plague him with a number of horrible diseases, it was poorly imagined in terms of movement and failed to match its subject matter. Galich began his career writing costumbrismos costume dramas with a political edge.
Perhaps because it was never finished, the play is a bit confusing. Over six days, regional directors and their technical crews had to struggle to accommodate their productions in the cramped performance space available at Manf with no backstage or wings and cope with its poor and outdated lighting and sound systems placed in the windows of the ground floor offices overlooking the stage, with the projectors and loudspeakers on the roofwhile the actors had to dress, make up and prepare for their parts in two dusty wooden shacks behind the stage.
Several of his plays, including El tren amarillo The Yellow Train,deal with the economic imperialism of the United States. Hend rated it liked it Mar 24, Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Fatma mohammed marked it as to-read Dec 18, Open Preview See a Problem?
