Originally from Brooklyn, New York, contemporary dancer Nicole Roerick relocated to Egypt in 2014. In a performance next Saturday, she will explore questions centered around themes of identity, cultural differences and accepting the other. 

"Being a white, blonde female with tattoos and short hair is not quite the norm here in Egypt," Darb1718 have announced on their Facebook page. "[Roerick] is exploring how she is able to understand other points of view and how she can still remain true to herself while also respecting the environment she is now a part of."

Roerick completed both her MFA and BFA in dance. She founded her own company, the Nicole Roerick Collective, in 2011 and has since showcased her work at a number of festivals across the United States.

This will be an interactive installation and performance. The performance will be followed by a Q&A session.

Saturday 31 January, 7pm
Darb 1718, Kasr El-Sham' St., Hayy El-Fakhareen, Old Cairo
