Khoyout Troupe will lead a playback-theatre evening at Cairo’s Gramophone on 14 July.

Playback theatre is an improvisational, interactive form of theatre based on real stories and personal anecdotes provided by the audience at the event.

Every performance is unique and spontaneous, and the troupe promises to “honor and re-enact [the stories] without exaggeration, without additions, and without judgement".

“We create a safe space where you can share a story from your life or even how you are feeling in the moment and we in turn play back your story through performance and music,” the troupe says in the event description.

Khoyout Troupe consists of eight people -- Rana, Rasha, Sarah, Nadine, Heba, Khaled, Amr and Mahmoud -- who share a passion for theatre and communal art.

Gramophone is an arts and culture community center that opened last year to host workshops, performances and exhibitions.
