Special Project: Nadah El Shazly at EMS Stockholm

Nadah El Shazly’s month-long residency at EMS branched into shows that went beyond Stockholm to include Clandestino Festival in Bottna and Norbergfestival in Norberg, as well as a very popular end of residency performance at Fylkingen, where it was one of the most attended shows in the recent history of the space.

As well as Nadah’s very fruitful time at the studio, inspiring her to push her composer practice further, there was great interest in her background as the first young female composer from Egypt/Arab world at EMS, with the interest materialising in a news interview on SVT Nyheter.
