Let's talk


TAMAT is a choreography created and performed by Aïda Jamal. It portrays the social, religious, and cultural burdens that women have to bear in our society. The project is still in progress, with some steps already completed. The first residency took place in Cairo, the capital of Egypt, while the second was held in Berlin at ‘Hebbel am Ufer’.

TAMAT was selected for the second edition of ‘Un/Controlled Gestures’ and was produced with support from the Goethe Institut Ägypten. It was also chosen for the contemporary dance festival ‘On Marche’ as part of ‘TAKLIF’, the first edition of a prize contest, where it won second place and received two residencies in France and support from the Minister of Culture of Morocco.
