It is worth noting that the (mime) is a type of artistic performance that depends on the aesthetic and visual sense, temporal rhythm, spatial space, gesture, and body movement, performed by one or more performers to represent a complete play.
The idea of establishing Gousor Center came when the Episcopal/Anglican Church saw what the Egyptian people lived in the past years during the revolutions of 25 January 2011 and 30 June 2013 and how the people expressed their dreams of freedom, democracy, social justice, and decent living, but it passed through a period of violence, extremism, and discrimination, and this period showed The importance of building the Egyptian human being and restoring the values that prevailed in Egypt in the past, and the Church saw that it is its duty as a national institution to contribute as much as it can to the return of beautiful Egypt by strengthening the harmony between the people’s spectrum and the acceptance and respect of the other, as the Church found that arts, literature, and music are the languages that unite People with different sects, it is a language that unites and does not differentiate. Hence the idea of establishing the Jusoor Cultural Center in the service building attached to the All Saints Cathedral to use arts, literature, and music to build bridges between members of society.
