Director’s welcome word

With the 13th edition of Hakawy gracing the stages across Cairo, Port Said & Ismailia,  we welcome your families and little ones to a new edition of Hakawy, with an exciting, enthralling lineup of performances that champions the extraordinary capacity of children – their boundless hope, unwavering adaptability, and the playful spirit that conquers every obstacle.

The salmon’s journey & vibrant transformation from ocean silver to fiery river red, like the festival itself, is a vibrant tapestry of colors, mirroring the diversity of experiences and perspectives that come together in this unique celebration for the young and the young at heart, this edition we witness tales spun from vibrant imaginations, melodies woven from laughter and wonder, and movements that defy gravity with the joyful abandon of youth.

Join us as we dive into the depths of creativity, where children lead the way, navigating the currents of life with the grace and strength of the salmon, emerging wiser, braver, and forever changed by the transformative power of art. 

It is my pleasure and the entire AFCA team behind the festival to have worked on this exciting edition and to bring your child and family an eclectic, enjoyable and fun festival experience and hope you enjoy your time with us.
