The Resilience of the Body responds to postrevolutionary Egypt. Artist Shaymaa Shoukry explores the resistance of the human body in an environment filled with violence, censorship and other limitations. This solo is performed in turn by Shaymaa Shoukry and by artist Mohamed Fouad to the sound of words uttered frantically. In this tense performance, words become political and incarnate personal combats and social pressures before reaching interior resilience.
