Cairo International Festival for Experimental Theater (CIFET) -headed by Dr. Gamal Yakout- launches the poster of its 29th edition, scheduled to take place between 1 and 8 September.
The poster designer, Moustafa Awad, states that the 29th edition includes several elements that highlight the essence of the festival, for the poster sheds light on the festival’s main theme “theatrical experimentation and technological development”.
Furthermore, Awad points out that the inclusion of technology into theater over recent years was the real motivation behind the poster’s design. There is considerable evolution in the field of technology, including the theater and its elements (scenography – decoration – lightning – sound – fashion). Hence, this led to having a state of integration between all elements. Undoubtedly, this development directly resulted in creating new prospects for directors and specialized people in that field to discover tools and ways that encourage the spectators to be in a state of coexistence in theatrical works, as if he is on stage through the art of glamour, embodied in technology that enhances the communication.
The 29th edition of CIFET bears the name of late international filmmaker “Peter Brook”, highlighting his exceptional theatrical history, experiences, and books that have had great impacts on the theatrical and research movement in the whole world. Brook is one of the pioneers of theatrical experimentation worldwide.
It is noteworthy that the 29th edition -scheduled to take place between 1 and 8 September- is held under the auspices of the Egyptian Minister of Culture, Dr, Nevine El-Kilani.
