Abstract

This essay discusses the recent Egyptian revolution and the surge of art which materialised and consequently contributed to the fuelling and documenting of the demonstrations. Considering the urgency and immediate need to create in a coming together of a people, this is analysed against Arendt’s theories of revolution and reflected against ‘Opera from Balconies’, an experimental theatrical project which took place spontaneously in various neighbourhoods in cities across the Egyptian Delta. It discusses echo of hope through collective engagement from the space of Tahrir Square to the domestic neighbourhoods of the ‘Opera from Balconies’ project.
