A new generation of young artists
The piece is an extract of a collective site-specific creation « Ex-Hibit » that was choreographed and performed by 8 dancers from the Silsilah Dance Programme participants of the fifth edition (2019-2020). Ex-Hibit, was presented in the premises of the French Institute on 17 November 2020, the performance was conceived and artistically directed by Shaymaa Shoukry, and was produced by Centre Rézodanse Egypte in partnership with Institut français d’Egypte à Alexandrie. The creation process of TRIO took place in the framework of the new Incubator programme by Rézodanse.
Much have I hesitated, in fear of rejection.
But he who rejects me does not hesitate.
I feared to be labelled « rejected ».
I silenced the chaos of my refusing thoughts, as confrontation is not a solution, nor escaping seems promising.The thoughts bewilder my mind;
refusing rejection is submission,
refusing who rejects me is resistanceUnable to count the many times I have been rejected
But nonetheless, I still exist
