The relationship between the founder of El Sawy Culturewheel; Mohamed Abdel Moneim El Sawy and puppet theater has not been cut out since his studies at the preparatory stage of the German Evangelical Secondary School in Cairo. El Sawy learnt the art of puppeteering by the German teacher and puppet artist Mr. Joerg Mast. Two years after the establishment of El Sakia, Mohamed El Sawy wanted to transfer his experience in this field to a group of talented young people who became the core of EL Sakia Puppet Theater.
EL Sakia puppet Theater started in 2005 with the play “El Masoora El Kbera” by Eng. Mohamed El Sawy. In the same year, a school was established to teach the art of puppetry in the framework “Agazti” Festival for children. About a year later, the "Um Kolthoum" project started and has continued until now. A monthly concert is held on the first Thursday of each month, in which El Sakia presents a puppet theater for Um Kolthoum and her entire musical band. The staff encouraged him to provide more work for children and adults. El Sakia puppet theater has 25 members, and the door is still open for training and inclusion of more artists. For 14 years, EL Sakia Puppet Theater has produced 15 plays for families and concerts for adults that present several Egyptian and foreign singers. EL Sakia puppet Theater presents its performances inside and outside El Sakia and participates in musical and theater festivals locally and internationally.
