Bint il balad rocks Ireland!


Me, in Bint il Balad character, photographed in Cairo, Egypt

Strong women, who manage to live with a rare combination of power, vulnerability, fierceness and honesty, have always inspired me. It´s easy to be fierce and mean; easy to be vulnerable and weak; too easy to become a quitter. What´s truly amazing is the combination of contrasts and the ability to resist life´s punches, never allowing them to make us less than human.

Baladi women, like the ones I´m taking in my luggage to Ireland, belong to that group: the golden ones, the rare mix of sweet & sour.

I wish my dance, and my life, will always honour them.
