The Voice of Egyptian Dance, A Tribute to Oum Kalthoum , by Jawaahir Dance Company
Cassandra and Jawaahir invite you to join us in a concert celebration of the Egyptian vocal giant Um Kalthoum. We will perform new and revived works representing the iconic expressions of the late, great Egyptian singer. You will have the unique opportunity to hear some of these musical gems in the singer’s own voice.
This video is about BelAhdan with Taous Khazem , Mizna and Dreamland Arts present “In Algeria They Know My Name.” Written and performed by Taous Khazem; directed and dramaturgy by Zaraawar Mistry.
In Algeria, they say you don’t marry one finger, you marry all ten. In this heartfelt and humorous one woman play, Minnesota-raised Taous Khazem travels to her father’s homeland to work as a theater artist, and unexpectedly falls in love with an Algerian clown. Caught in between traditions, religions and misconceptions, Taous struggles to find a sense of belonging in a foreign land, but ultimately discovers a fresh meaning of home, family, art and bicycle rides.
