The University of Minnesota’s Performing Arts Archives (PAA) has mounted an exhibit on the history of dance in Minnesota. Dance Roots highlights the local and international influences that make for a competitive and fascinating network of choreographers, dancers, teachers, and dance photographers. The gallery displays archival posters, writings, dance notation, never-before-seen media, costumes, and set designs. Through January 31, 2024.
Jawaahir is lending the Archives our Oum Kalthoum hanging, the Shoma costume, and the palm tree costume for this exhibit, along with programs and other media for our major shows. They were happy to have it because it “isn’t beige.”
Watch Oriana of Fanoos Magazine interview our very own Vanessa of Cairo. They had a wide-ranging conversation covering how Vanessa became Artistic Director of Jawaahir, what her goal is for the company, some of her history of work in Egypt, what it takes to join and contribute to a troupe, and some recommendations for troupe leaders. Of course, they also talked about Jawaahir’s show, Alwan Masr, and the guest artist Karim Nagi.
