Cairo Weekend Guide: Mawaweel 2014, Hayy Festival & More!
With Eid just around the corner, we’re all eager to go to the beach, but while we collectively wait for Ramadan to end, here are a few things you can do over the weekend to keep things interesting!
Darb 1718 kicks off this year’s edition of Mawaweel, featuring a colourful bazaar, art exhibitions and performances by Tahteeb, Hawidro and the Ghalia Benali, while the Hayy Festival 2014 continues at the El Genaina Theatre, tonight featuring Nesma Herky and Jordanian singer Lara Elayyan.
Comedic music duo, High on Body Fat, perform at Heliopolis’ Photopia as part of the Music Nights series, while El Sawy Culturewheel delves into the infinite pool of Egyptian nostalgia with Abdel Halim Hafez – a puppet theatre production celebrating the career and life of the legendary singer.
There’s art to be soon to, with Picasso Gallery hosting its summer collection which brings together the work of seventeen local artists. Elsewhere, Downtown’s Kafein is showing ‘Love Signals’ by Aya Yehia.
