About DAAS

The show will be performed by students from Al Darb Al Ahmar Arts School, aged between 8 and 18. The school was launched in March 2011 in order to train the young children of the area to perform circus arts and play percussion and brass instruments. 
The purpose is to help children from Cairo’s Darb Al Ahmar district gain new career prospect by training them in circus arts and music, opening up prospects for employment in the future in the arts, music and other creative fields. The project also seeks to raise the awareness of the inhabitants of this district on the value of art and its role in community development.
The school troupe has presented a variety of performance including one designed by STOMP in June 2013, Darbaka in February 2014, the musical Lost and Found in February 2014, which was performed in Cairo and Beirut. They have also participated in the children theatre festival in Kuwait and in three rounds of Cairo International Circus Festival (CirCairo), and performed at El Genaina Theater, Falaky Theater and Beit ElSehemy.
