In Bologna, it was a great and lovely experience when I met such a great Italian artists to have an open class with me, Bassam abou Diab "Lebanon and Sharaf Dar Ziad "Palestine".
The class was about using sharing our work and our performances in the tour of the young Arab choreographers in Italy and how we create our movements in the performances.
Bologna was the second city of the touring for me, which I met the artists during our stay in a friendly space "Dynamo".
Bolonga, the Danza Urbana festival, the artistic director Massimo Carosi, was such a great experience I had during 3 or 4 days and I met wonderful artists performed in the Danza Urbana Festival.
PS:- soon will update about the whole tour in Italy and speak about the different cities I met.

The new project "Nawah" will be performed in Belgrade summer festival "Serbia" and will be performed on the 9th of July.
Nawah is performed by Mounir Saeed with The Egyptian Musician "Mostafa Rashad" for the first collaboration between them, expecting to perform this performance in Cairo and in other countries soon.
Nawah is a contrast between War and Peace, creating an illousion facts about being in peace all the time and ignoring the facts of war, dealing with that with the music\voice and dance\movemnts, singing a song from the famous singer in Egypt "Sheikh Emam" and a song from "The white Buffalo", I know you.
