Mahatat is reviving the lost tradition of the Wonder Box by bringing together nine artists from different artistic disciplines to create a new box to roam Cairo's neighborhoods. Two storytellers, two visual artists, three architects and two musicians are bringing back the old magic of the Wonder Box in a contemporary form.
The very dedicated artists have been working continuously for two months to gather stories from taxi and toktok drivers, to research the newest techniques and to test the feasibility of integrating various visual tricks into the box. The team will tour Cairo’s various neighborhoods this April and May.
