El-Rasael - Ard El-Khouf (The Messages - Land of Fear) dance performance by the Modern Theatre Dance troupe was staged last week at the Cairo Opera House.
The dance is inspired by Dawood Abdelsayed's eponymous 1999 film. The story is about a police officer who is assigned to a secret mission as an undercover drug dealer, with the ultimate purpose of reporting back to his supervisors, he is given the license to kill, deal in drugs, and do whatever is required for his identity to remain secret, untill gradually he loses his grip over his mission and purpose.
It was also performed at the Damanhour Opera House in October.
The Modern Theatre Dance Troupe was established in 1993, and presents works that reflect Egyptian society and culture. It has since represented Egypt in many festivals and international events.
