A family of a writer, filmmaker, and actor will together organize Gudran, a cross-disciplinary event that features interactive performances in Abdel Aziz’s home in downtown Cairo, which will be refashioned into a theater stage and filming location. The performances, which will take place over three days, are to consist of monodramas that engage with a local audience, and which are inspired by Abdel Aziz’s highly personal experience of the social distancing and isolation measures she has undertaken since the outbreak of the coronavirus this year. Abdel Aziz seeks to bring the immediate neighborhood into the event, looking to connect with arts practitioners and communities in the area, as well as residents of downtown Cairo.
