Together we develop Egypt project in the Suez Governorate community has completed the theatrical training initiative with the first performances in the presence of a diverse audience from all over the governorate, according to a statement by the Episcopal/Anglican Church that sponsors the project.
Young people were trained on theatrical performance through 40 hours of training, including actor preparation workshops and 20 hours of writing course, with the aim of developing society through art and preparing different-minded artists who are able to contribute to the dissemination of culture and arts in their community.
On his behalf, Ramez Bekhit, the project coordinator, said: The youth presented a theatrical performance entitled “The Secret Mission”, which is the product of the writing workshop, where the story revolves around a secret group whose goal is to build a colony on the moon; their spacecraft has an accident while landing on the moon. All oxygen devices are disrupted, and the main events revolve around how to cooperate and find a way out of this crisis.
Bekhit added: (The Secret Mission) is a text written in the manner of separate connected panels, where it presents several types and colors to the theater and discusses several issues and moves between them smoothly, as the text discusses several issues indirectly, for example, diversity, difference, harassment, bullying, class, and cooperation.
The project is held under the auspices of the Episcopal/ Anglican Church in Egypt, with North Africa and the Horn of Africa, and the Misr El Kheir Foundation.
The project is scheduled to include a set of initiatives and events in the governorates of Cairo, Alexandria, Minya, and the cities of Sadat and Menouf in Menoufia Governorate.
The project aims to establish strong and real relationships and friendships between young people, develop their capabilities and raise their cultural and civilizational awareness, in addition to the participation of trainees together in implementing practical initiatives that benefit their local communities, with the aim of reaching a degree of integration and quality of work through communication with government agencies and community organizations.
