No Point Perspective:

Founded in Cairo by Mirette Mechail in 2002.

Their performances are mainly the result of improvisations on personal and intimate issues, relationships and the tensions between what one wants to occur and what is actually there. This process results in productions with a vivid, light hearted and a humorous language. There is a main structure to Mirette's work that is non-narrative, yet emotionally and kinetically powerful. In her work, the dance, music, and the verbal text are an indivisible unit. Over the past 15 years, the company has premiered over 12 new performances in collaboration with artists from other disciplines including composers, film makers and musicians.
