Islam Elnebishy is an Egyptian dancer and choreographer, based in Germany.
He’s a graduate of Maat | CCDC contemporary dance school and currently enrolled in the MA CuP (Choreography and Performance) at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen. He also studied in the year-long programme at Cairo Initiative for Liberal Studies and Arts (CILAS) in 2016.
Proposing an interplay between physical images and spoken word, Islam’s practice has a critical and dramaturgical potential that is challenging tendencies in contemporary dance and audiences’ perceptions, stereotypes and expectations.
This residency programme is funded by the Bulgarian National Culture Fund.
