Yellow Days, Swiss text for theatre written by Daniela Janjic between 2005 and 2006 will be performed for the second time in Cairo. This time, the text was adapted and directed by Egyptian theatre director Ashraf Sanad, and will be performed for 15 nights.  

In Yellow Days, the war has already begun before it breaks out: despite her brother’s warnings, the woman is with a man who belongs with “the others”. His faith and his origins make him a stranger. However, the ideal of different ethnic groups living together peacefully still appears to be intact. At worst, aggression explodes whilst playing football. They even unite when a third party attacks. Husband and brother fight the enemy together, forcing him to retreat. Yet, winning is not followed by reconciliation: the conflict is now in the open and is continued within this partnership of convenience and escalates in a bloodbath. Husband and brother become deadly enemies, and the woman is caught up in between two fronts whose characteristics constantly change, until in the end, no one knows on whose side he is (Performances run daily except Mondays starting 26 January to 12 February, 8pm).
