Tackling the extraordinary: MAISHA and the three-week co-creative challenge

May 24, 2024

In the dynamic world of MAISHA, artists from diverse continents and cultural backgrounds unite to tackle an extraordinary challenge: assembling a show from scratch in just three weeks.

For the Dance edition, this means navigating choreography, stage setup, costume design and music coordination with a live band, each aspect demanding careful coordination and attention to detail. In the midst of this whirlwind, another significant challenge arises. Unlike professional ensembles who can rely on a history of teamwork and coordination, MAISHA artists must first establish cohesion by getting to know each other and finding common ground to collaborate effectively.

Only a very select breed of artists can navigate these complexities and demonstrate that collaboration knows no bounds and that cultural diversity is not a hindrance but a source of strength on stage.
