ARABIAN NIGHTS (article first published : 2006-04-29)

Fresh from London, Lebanon, and a successful month-long run in Cape Town, the Raqs Sharqi Dance Company is to present Arabian Nights in the Hilton College Theatre on May 13.

Arabian Nights is a moving, passionate, electrifying dance theatre production performed by internationally-trained belly dance artist Beverley Joffe. More than an exhibition of diverse belly dancing, the show features mime, narrative and the celebration of liberated womanhood, punctuated and reinforced by expressive dance.

Performer, producer and teacher Joffe recounts the misadventures of a young Arab girl abducted and seduced by a potentate. Mime is brilliantly used for the rape scene, after which comes the discovery of love; the girl’s escape from servitude; and her ultimate liberation through dance.

Arabian Nights takes place on May 13 at 19h30 at the Tickets R60 b the Hilton College Theatre on 033 383 0126 (booking office open weekdays 08h30 to 16h00)
