The contemporary dance music performance titled 'Albi' (My Heart) will be staged at the American University in Cairo's Falaki Theatre on two consecutive evenings, 16 and 17 November.

Created and directed by Sabrine El-Hossamy, an Egyptian darbuka (tabla) and doff (percussive instrument) player, the performance centres on the idea of a heart being "the house of intuition and balance between mind and body," we read in the performance's promotional material.

Combining music and dance, Albi will feature two dancers: Sherin Hegazy and Sarah Gabr Helmy performing to choreography by Sherin Hegazy, Sarah Gabr, and Sabrine El-Hossamy.

The music of the show is based on El-Hossamy playing darbuka with the electronic live performance by Shahir, member of the Masters at Funk collective.

The show's assistant director is Mohamed Bonga, light design by Nancy Iskander, sound engineering by Shady Mohamed and Peter Maged from Dream Studio with costumes by Gamil Saleh.


Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November, 8pm
