Town House Rawabet

Description: Rawabet is a unique Egyptian initiative that began in 2006, serving as a platform for the independent performing art scene in Cairo and the country as a whole. It was founded by a group of independent artists who recognised the urgent need for an artistic venue for independent groups and for an audience base interested in alternative contemporary performing arts, including theatre, music and film. The lack of independent, non-profit performance and rehearsal spaces has long been a problem for performers in Egypt, where the vast majority of facilities are either state-run or commercial in nature. In the face of these deterrents and with the support of Townhouse, the founders identified a suitable space; an old unused warehouse located in Downtown, Cairo which was converted into a theatre equipped for the needs of independent groups. Its name ‘Rawabet’, Arabic for ‘links’, expresses its overriding objective; to offer a space that creates constant connections among artists and between artists and audiences.

تأسست روابط عام ٢٠٠٦ كمبادرة مصرية مميزة تعمل كمنصة للفنون الأدائية في القاهرة و مصر ككل. بدأت روابط على يد مجموعة من الفنانين المستقلي ممن شعروا بالحاجة إلى مساحة فنية للفرق المستقلة و جمهور مهتم بالفنون الأدائية المعاصرة و التي تشمل المسرح و الموسيقى و الأفلام. في ظل أزمة غياب المساحات المستقلة المفتوحة للعرض و البروفات، استطاع هؤلاء الفنانون و بدعم من تاون هاوس أن يجدوا مكاناً مناسباً، مخزن قديم بوسط القاهرة. تم تحويل هذا المخزن المهجور إلى مسرح مجهز بإمكانات تتناسب مع حاجة الفرق المستقلة. يعبر اسم “روابط” عن هدفها، توفير مساحة تخلق روابط مستمرة بين الفنانين و بعضهم و بين الجمهور
Townhouse Rawabet is an independent space that as its sole purpose provides a place for independent artists to perform their work.
