The Residency Rooms

The residency rooms are located in the Dokki district and are on the first floor of the Goethe-Institut. Dokki is located on the west side of the Nile across from downtown, which can be quickly reached by metro, cab, or a 30-minute walk.

The residence apartment consists of two single rooms and one double room, each with its own bathroom. The kitchen, living areas and a workspace room are shared. Outside there are two terraces and a table tennis table. Additional rehearsal rooms can be organized as needed.
