A SOLO FOR ANNA BORRAS
Vincenzo Lamagna – Original Score
When I received a phone call from my dear friend and partner in crime Jorge Crecis, asking if I had any music to lend to a piece he was set to create about his experience in Cairo, it took me just a few of minutes to say “I will write something new for you”!
A few seconds later I discovered that I only had five days to write it, produce it and release it! Well, I was in, wasn’t I? It has been a lot of fun, we worked fast and hard and I am excited to be part of it and to present it to you today!
Anna Borras – Lead Performer
I do not dance “Cairo”, I channel it, I allow it to exist through me. I feel how it holds onto me, how it transforms and transports me. I surrender to it and everything flows.
Eva Escribano – Stylist
Cairo was the first project where I shared my passion for clothing and design in collaboration with other artists, and I can’t be more proud of having been part of such a talented group. Big decisions in a short time makes for a lot of fun!
Special thanks for the twenty extra performers who came and experiment with us for 4 hours of intense creation in real time.

WHAT THE ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THIS WORK:
Jorge Crecis – Concept and Direction of the original solo
It was my second time in Egypt. In the morning of my 4th day in Cairo, I met the world’s most beautiful woman. In that moment, I knew I had to choreograph a solo inspired by this unique city.
Danilo Moroni – Film director
Farm1027 always likes challenges. One day Jorge (choreographer and movement director) picks up the phone and five minutes later”Cairo” begins.
“Cairo” is a an experience of express creation, born from the desire to portrait a personal experience after Jorge’s journey to Egypt. It is not a documentary, it is not narrative: it is an artistic experience, an express creation.
