Healing Confrontations

Rehab Eldalil | Egypt

Performers get last minute feedback from director before the show. Sometimes when the topic of the stories is sensitive or puts the storyteller in danger - professional performers are hired to do the actual show. For months they study the stories under the storyteller's supervision. This show tells the stories of women who went through such domestic violence that many of them lost their children's lives in the process.

The BuSSy project is a performing arts project that documents and gives voice to censored untold stories about gender in different communities in Egypt.

This story depicts the raw human connections that are developed throughout the storytelling process between BuSSy and participants. Participants are selected from vulnerable communities of mainly women from all around the country. Within six months, the group is encouraged to tell their stories, own their stories and if they want to, perform their stories to live audience by the end of the six months training. The story illustrates the support and empowerment in the process and its life long impact on the beneficiaries as well as audience.
