Cairo; a new solo created on Anna Borràs. When The Heat Hits The Streets, you don’t know if you’re awake or dreaming. You don’t hear a sound but there’s something in the air. Your body is tired but the city keeps calling, pushing you further and taking you higher: turning your smoke into fire (extract from the lyrics of ‘When The Heat Hits The Streets’ by Laura Branigan).
