Sotour men Dafater Masr (Lines from Egypt’s Diaries) is a musical and dramatic performance: a fusion, in which pure music, song, poetry recital and acting meet. The work is artistically based on lines of poetry in colloquial as well as classical Arabic (fosha), written by Egyptian poets and writers in the seventies and eighties, predicting the revolution and calling in their lines for change and social justice, through writing about people’s prohibited dreams back then. These writers and poets died early before they could see the dream of the revolution come true, like Naguib Sorour, Mahmoud Diab, Amal Donkol, Salah Abdel Sabour, Anas Daoud and others, who have predicted the revolution but haven’t really lived to see it happen on the 25th of January 2011.
