Double Bill

The Resilience of the Body & Portray Warehouse9


A double bill of dance works from award-winning international dance artist Shaymaa Shoukry.

The Resilience of the Body aims to find continuity and perseverance in the world we live in today, using the repetitive action of running and spoken text to express the inner struggles and social pressures of urban daily life. Shoukry wanted to re-find dance. Dance however could not be found, and for the first time in her work, text found its way into the performance.

Portray unravels the layers of a body through its reservoir, tapping into timeless states of being, and exploring inner movement, transformation and the action of shaking.

Supported by the Danish Egyptian Dialogue Institute.
