Why a Women's Festival?

Unlike the widespread belief that consideration of women's issues is necessarily a bias against men, women's creativity launches a different creativity sensitivity. Dealing with women's issues has an inevitable positive impact on the society as a whole.

Why Eazees ?

Eazees is the Ancient Egyptian Goddess of the Moon. According to the myth, Eazees collected the severed body parts of her murdered husband Osiris to revive him and give birth to Horus, whom she will support to overcome his father’s murderer, God Seth, the God of darkness and evil. Theater is like Eazees. It collects our severed parts and gives them life, and fertilizes them with values of justice, goodness and esthetics, that is why we chose her as a feminine symbol of our festival.

About Festival!

MAy 2024 will witness the launch of the second session of the Eazees International Women’s Theater Festival, which bears the name of the great writer Aida Abdel Aziz.

The festival is an event with interest in launching the issues and problematics of contemporary theater, i. e., it is mainly interested in various and developed modernist experiences, and is not just a feminist developmental festival for stage plays about awareness raising of women's problems, it is rather an artistic festival in the first place, with a feminist framework, without making feminism its main objective.

About Info

The Egyptian Actress, Abeer Loutfy, the president and founder of the festival, Announced

That the great actor Sawsan Badr was enthusiastic about the idea of the festival from the beginning and agreed to take the position of honorary president in this founding session, noting that she was chosen because she is a great star, a capable actress and a first-class theatre lady, in addition to being an icon of the shape and beauty of Egyptian women and therefore it is the most appropriate personality For a festival about the Women’s Theatre named after the Egyptian goddess Eazees, the moon goddess. She added that the first session of the festival takes place from May 16 to 22 May 2024, and after the name of the Great writer Fathia Al-Assal, because she is considered to be the inspiration for the idea of the festival, and if she was among us now, she would surely support the idea of a festival of this kind because she devoted her life to defend women's issues and expressed Her concerns and pains in her books and literary works, including "She and the Impossible", "Women Prison", "Women without Masks" and "Night of Henna" and others, and for this, the least honour for her is that the first session to be After her name. She pointed out that this step was delayed in Egypt a lot, as most Arab countries are interested in the theatre of women and have women festivals, so why do we not have an international festival in Egypt concerned with women's issues in general, noting that once the idea was presented to the Minister of Culture, Dr. Ines Abdeldayem, since 2018, was very enthusiastic about it and directed it to quickly finish the procedures for approving the festival and place it on the map of the Ministry of Culture. She emphasized that this festival comes within the framework of the state’s plan and plan to support the empowerment of women and the development of their capabilities, which is an essential component of the development strategy 2030, to increase the proportion of women participating in economic development, and under the patronage of Dr. Ines Abdeldayem the first woman to assume the Ministry of Culture since its foundation.
