No Point Perspective

No Point Perspective Dance Theater

  is a non-profit arts organization based in Cairo - Egypt works with artists who are exploring new expressions in contemporary dance and performance, and nurtures their creative processes. For over eight years, we have created opportunities for artists to develop and present a new language in dance and performance in Egypt.

    The company provides artists with creative integrity, advances the critical role of contemporary dance and performance in local culture, and promotes public involvement in the art form.

   No Point Perspective presents the choreography of Artistic Director Mirette Mechail along with her dancers, primarily in the form of public performances in Egypt.

   The company's work -vibrant, simple , sarcastic contemporary dance pieces for proscenium and non-traditional spaces has flourished the company into one of the most popular dance companies in the country . There is a main structure to Mirette's work that is non-narrative yet emotionally and kinetically powerful. In her work, the dance, the music and the verbal text are an indivisible unit. In the past nine years, the company has premiered over seven new performances , including a number of pieces created in collaboration with artists from other disciplines including composers, film makers and musicians .
