DANCE BRIGADE from the USA at the Falaki Theatre

The ensemble DANCE BRIGADE from the United States will bring to Cairo "Cavewomen: The Next Incarnation" on Friday May 11, 2012 (see details below).

CaveWomen . . . THE NEXT INCARNATION! is a primal feast of movement, theater, martial arts, and taiko drumming, delivered with passion and biting intellectual wit. The CaveWomen series is Dance Brigade's antidote to war and the present state of affairs in the world - a stunning evocation of female power, a good dose of humor, black leather, and gutsy social commentary.

Dance Brigade
Since 1975, Artistic Director Krissy Keefer has refined a form of political dance theater that rivals other contemporary artists. Keefer's signature style combines bold political content, cutting-edge movement, and stunning theater, and for this creation, Keefer deftly "steers her fellow dancers and choreographers through the myriad strands of her richly conceived material with an unfailing sense of direction." (SF Bay Guardian) The Dance Brigade dancers include , Lena Gatchalian, Sarah Bush, Tina Banchero, Debby Kajiyama, Kimberly B. Valmore,Fredrik Keefer, Jill Hibbert all known for their ability to deliver Keefer's work with power and panache..
