Twenty Wheelchairs Roam Downtown Cairo in Mission Roosevelt
Twenty wheelchairs driving through the city streets can feel like an invasion, says Diane Bonnot, the co-creator of Mission Roosevelt. As part of the Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF), Bonnot along with Iacopo Fulgi adapted their performance to downtown Cairo`s streets. And through an open call, 20 participants were invited to complete a mission, interacting along the way with the streets, traffic and passersby.
We followed the group as they started their mission and spoke to some of the participants about their experience for the first time with a wheelchair. We also spoke to Bonnot and Fulgi about the show which they designed and have been adapting to various cities around the world.
