It has been an absolute privilege and honour to be back home to have been at the Vertical Road screening at Zawya Cinema in Cairo. It was such a pleasure to have shared my Vertical Road journey and experience with artists over there and my Egyptian brothers and sisters. Having my beloved wife and daughter with me made it even more of a family reunion. Thank you to the British Council for making this happen.

Salah El Brogy Company was at last night’s Nour Festival of Arts launch at Leighton House Museum.
Dancer, performer, choreographer and dance teacher Salah is part of this year’s festival line up with his contemporary dance solo on memory and memory loss entitled GLITCH. A post show Q&A follows the performance featuring Salah and a panel of experts talking about the science of memory and how to improve your memory.
SEBC Producer, Manager and Co-owner Mars El Brogy made a short speech as part of the event.
She said: “Nour Festival, as its name is aptly called, lights up the platform for Middle Eastern and North African Artists to show their work. Also, the festival gives its audiences throughout its seven years of existence an enriching, thought-provoking experience.
“It’s great to be part of a celebration of rich cultural diversity, history and world class talent – away from religious and political stereotypes.”
Salah added: “I’m delighted to have GLITCH’s European premiere at Nour Festival, which is very close to my heart.
“It makes me proud to be part of an amazing festival in London celebrating Middle Eastern and North African diversity.”
The European premiere of GLITCH is on Tuesday, November 1, 8pm at Chelsea Theatre. Get your tickets here.

It has been an absolute privilege to have taught my Extemporaneous Dance Style Class over at Cairo Contemporary Dance Centre earlier this month. Really looking forward to seeing the future results of what I’ve planted in the next generation of contemporary dance artists in Egypt. Thank you Karima Mansour (CCDC), Cathy Costain (British Council) and Mars El Brogy (SEBC Producer/Manager) for making this happen.
