El Saqiyeh/El Mizan
El Saqiyeh Iskandar Dance Company’s new production celebrates the powerful integration of Sha’abi (traditional folk), contemporary dance and theatre, through the progressive form of Hilal Dance, which is based on the aesthetic of Arab/Egyptian culture. International dancer and choreographer Alessandro el Bascioni is accompanied by two dancers and the renowned percussionist, Ibrahim El Minyawi, with the rich music of Les Musiciens du Nil. These performers come together in an intricate play of movement, melody and rhythms. "It was a sense of freedom which ran through Iskandar Dance Company’s beautiful El Saqiyeh... giving a wonderful sense of harmony between costume, dance and music" Ballet Magazine El Mizan Hilal Dance Company’s new work boldly explores the true meaning of Oscillations: the swing of the pendulum, the journey and the search for the point of balance (el Mizan) in one’s body and mind. International choreographer/dancer and founder, Suraya Hilal, has been lauded as one of the great talents of our time and her company’s work represents an unparalleled development of Arab/Egyptian dance. El Mizan is inspired by Joseph Tawadros’ evocative improvisations on the classical Oud, the oldest and foremost musical instrument of the Arab world.
