Studio Emad Eddin in Cairo is launching the “Studio From Home” programme, which will feature online workshops on acting, dancing and the principles of costume design.
The workshops will run throughout the month of Ramadan with the aim of bringing activities to people who practice self-isolation.
The three programmes are “The Small Dances Project” with Florence Moutin-Cornille, “Monologue Acting for Beginners” with Mary Aravanis, and “Costume Design for the Stage” presented by Nermine Saeed.
According to the press release, The Small Dances Project aims to inspire body-awareness. The sessions also encourage participants to discover different areas of the body that can be used for self-expression through small dances in limited space.
Moutin-Cornille is originally from France, but lived in Egypt for twelve years, during which time she was involved in the contemporary dance scene.
The workshop is a month long, with sessions airing every Wednesday from 29 April to 20 May.
Costume Design for the Stage will focus on the role of costume in performance and the stages of its design. There will also be a demonstration of the differences between creating for theatre and cinema and designing/styling within the fashion industry.
Presenter Saeed is an Egyptian costume designer for stage and screen.
The workshop will be uploaded weekly from 1 May.
The Monologue Acting for Beginners programme is led by Aravanis, a Greek-Egyptian actress and writer. Participants will learn the fundamental skills needed for script analysis, as well as receiving tools and exercises to help them build upon their performances.
The timings of the workshop are yet to be revealed.
