The Interdisciplinary Music Theater Cairo is an artistic interaction and exchange project between Switzerland and Egypt to initiate a group of Egyptian artists, who will take charge afterward to develop, create and launch a Musiktheater Alumni centered in Cairo, and spread the genre through their artistic work and projects in the Arab world. The project is a cooperation between the Egyptian composer Wael Sami Elkholy and Prohelvetia Cairo. It is based on series of 6 workshops/phases over 3 years with different Swiss experts in the field Musiktheater. 10 Egyptian artists with different skills (dance, music, visual, media arts, etc...) are mixing their expression practices in a contemporary form of Interdisciplinary Music Theater. The music is the central axle of the entire project.
