Msh Zanbek Theatre Performance

Msh Zanbek, formerly You W-Ana Too is an original play written in Arabic and English by young Egyptian women and men. Msh Zanbek explores the issue of sexual harassment from multiple perspectives: family and couple, bystander, victim and perpetrator, male and female, power and incapacity. 

Msh Zanbek is five original short scenes performed outdoors in five different locations around the New Cairo campus and the Tahrir Square campus. Ticket holders will gather in a central campus location and be assigned to a small group. Each small audience group, led by a guide, will walk to a different starting scene and rotate through all five scenes watching the story unfold.

The play involves over 50 AUC students and alumni working as directors, playwrights, actors, designers and managers. Co-creators of the play are Jillian Campana, professor of theatre and associate dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and Dina Amin, head of the Theatre Program and associate professor of theatre.

The play will be livestreamed on April 21, 22 and 23 at 9 pm on AUC Center for the Arts YouTube channel.

Explore different situations of sexual harassment through five plays.
