Although it takes the world’s economic crisis as its theme, "A (Micro) History of World Economics, Danced" is a performance about people, explains French director and choreographer Pascal Rambert. The performance is a collection of personal stories written in real time by fifty volunteer performers from each city the show tours, and is interspersed with a script developed by Rambert and a philosopher friend.
Rambert came to Cairo to put on the show for the fourth edition of the Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF). He worked with Egyptian students, workers, children and old people for 20 consecutive days to prepare them for the live show which includes improvisation and spontaneity.
This video documents parts of the rehearsals and group dynamics, as well as the performance at the GrEEK Campus in Cairo and an interview with Rambert.
