Creating Characters with Aïcha Funk

All Round Talent Aïcha Funk has been my collaborator since long, as dramaturg & model.  In my Egyptian creation Molahazat Ly Leia (Cairo Nightnotes) she was also performing live on stage multilingual lullabies.  Most recently Aïcha created the make-up in my Logo (on top of this blog).  

In 2009 Aïcha Funk stood model for many female characters in my long-term writing-project Mirror Storm, in which I express my ideas about modern identity.

In this portraits we were seeking for different styles of how the Mirror Storm - characters would look.  My camera became a spectrum of all Aïcha Funk's qualities, while she showed me her personal and nostalgic interpretations of the women in my manuscript.
