Welcome to Club Cairo. An evening that celebrates live music and dance from across the Middle East and beyond. Each incarnation wishes to share new aspects within the genre, creating a fresh and exciting experience every time. The aim is to inspire, educate and bring fun and fantasy to the audience.
A regular feature at Club Cairo are our invited guests from cultures far and wide. Their traditions, rhythms and dance are a wonderful addition, creating an even more potent experience.
Another exciting aspect to our evenings has been the introduction of theatre. Again, combining the traditions of Middle Eastern music and dance but this time with drama.
Each production is historically based and then transformed into an abstraction of sight, sound and movement with a difference. Drawing on the roots of tradition yet branching out to explore new forms of expression. A provocative and super-sensory experience combining fantasy with reality.
Club Cairo has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, always encouraging not only the audience to observe but to participate too. We are very proud to appeal to such a cross section of people. A multicultural gathering all drawn together to enjoy a feast of global delights.
Club Cairo presented its first event in 2010. Five years on after eight sell out shows it’s going stronger than ever and is travelling nationally.
Carmen Jones is the core producer. She has been working with musicians regularly teaching and performing for many years in UK and abroad…. Ibiza, Turkey and Egypt. She has drawn on this experience to create a show that is fueled by her passion and understanding of these art forms. Music, Dance, theatre and Vibrant Visuals combine to create a captivating display straight from the heart of the Middle East.
JULNAH OF THE SEA
An enchanting fairy tale from the East filled with marvels, magic and wonders. A mother/child relationship that endures many twists and turns in a world steeped in fantasy and adventure.
The Arabian fantasy dance theatre combine Live music, dance and theatre to create a captivating experience.
The origins of the dance in this company in essence are Middle Eastern. However this production also combines contemporary and ballet dance to express the true nature of the characters.
Our live music ensemble combines traditional Middle Eastern and western instruments with modern sounds too. The soundtrack for this show is particularly other worldly and really enhances your journey through each scene.
We also use multi media projections to add more dimension, colour and expression. This again adds another expressive layer adding a further burst of life. And of course we have our storyteller. Who joins the characters on their journey giving them a voice as well as retelling the tale so eloquently.
