The second year of Nahda Arts School for Social Theatre culminated with a creative celebration held on Wednesday 10 August

A performance and a graduation ceremony for the second year of Nahda Arts School for Social Theatre was held on Wednesday at Al-Azhar park in Cairo.

The performance held in Al-Azhar park's paths allowed the visitors to interactively participate in the celebration.

The school is a theatrical initiative that aims to tackle social issues in local communities by performing in streets, squares and public spaces in villages and towns.

The school's mission is to provide "a training space for performers on various performing arts and theatrical styles that works to conquer the distance between theatre and community."

The school was established in 2013 and its first group of students graduated in November 2014.

The duration of study at the school is 11 months, where during a period of 660 hours the trainees learn the skills of acting, dancing, dramaturgy, improvisational theatre, the theatre of the oppressed, the clown skills, and directing. They also study the history of community theatre.

Each semester ends with a performance where the students show the skills they obtained during the year.

The trainers are a team of Egyptian and foreign theatre experts.

Nahda Arts School for Social Theatre is one of the artistic activities of El-Nahda Association for Scientific and Cultural Renaissance -- Jesuit Cairo, which considers the role of arts and creativity in developing human capabilities and enhancing local communities.
