Annual dance programme 'Nessim El-Raqs' (The Dance Breeze) organised by Centre Rezodanse Egypte brings several contemporary dance performances to various public spaces in Alexandria between 5 and 11 May.

Challenging the limitedness of spaces for performing in Egypt's seaside city, and presenting a form of arts people on the street are not used to seeing, 'Nessim El-Raqs' has been around since 2007.

Most recently, the Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF) collaborated with Centre Rezodanse to bring some of their 'Urban Visions' programme which also features contemporary dance in public spaces in Egypt's second capital.
