On 31 March and 1 April, Square One performance was staged as part of Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival
Square One, a performance that joins artists from Ireland and Egypt, was staged on two consecutive days, 31 March and 1 April, at the Sultan Qaitbay and El Shawarby street respectively.
The performance is part of the ongoing Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival, D-CAF.
The show that took place in a public space was compiled by the Irish contemporary dance company Cork (Ireland) and incorporated abled and disabled dancers. According to the programme notes, the performance is based on "conceptual artist Richard Tuttle's idea that square one is when you get to the point where life and art become one. and poet Mary Oliver's idea of the soft animal self. Square One explores our everyday experiences of dance, movement and the daily embodied joy of our soft animal selves."
