Dance: A Bellydance Odyssey
Canada Water Theatre presents The Light in Your Heart and the Way Back Home, a story about the human pursuit of inner light and life
From one womans inspirational bellydance journey told through entertaining anecdotes and colourful varied choreography to a look at future bellydance fusion. Colourful, vibrant and exciting.
In the first half we encounter Helwa Bellydance Company performing Bellydance, A True Story, the journey of Kay Taylor, an inspirational national figure in Bellydance, from the streets of Cairo to glamorous cabaret. With influences from the Pharaonic era through to the present day – the rich history, colourful costumes and sheer variety of Egyptian dance styles is sure to dazzle.
In the second half we discover Johara Dance Company performing Mind, Body, Spirit, a modern interpretation of Bellydance in its pure form and in fusion with other dances. Travel with us through the frustrating maze of the human mind, the sensuous delight of the human body and the pure expression of the human spirit. Celebrated choreographer Josephine Wise has created a world of excitement, humour and passion.
