Lights, Camera, Action!!
With these events in Jacksonville, Florida, we are dipping our toes into something new. Recording JtE-1 and -2 for an eventual online release. We’ll be changing the format of JtE slightly to accommodate these recordings, while still allowing you the most uninterrupted learning experience possible.
We’ll be conducting the lecture portion of the series in blocks, each to be followed by a Question and Answer session (which will honestly take up most of our weekend!).
You are not required to be on film in any way during this course. No one will be filmed dancing, or asking questions during the course. The only parts we’ll be filming are Sahra’s lecture portions.
Why does this matter to you?
Because we’re lowering the price to accommodate!
Prices for JtE often run around $350.00 per weekend of the course, with only a slight discount for both courses together.
However, due to the nature of the weekend, we’re lowing the price:
If you are also attending River City Raqs, earlier in March you are also qualified for a special discount of $50.00 off one weekend, or $75.00 off both. Proof of payment to RCR is required.
To register, simply Paypal your deposit to TiffanyNoro [at] gmail [dot] com and include which weekends you’d like to attend in the notes. You may pay the remainder of your balance via Paypal or check closer to the dates of the workshop.
Deposits are non-refundable.
Information about Journey Through Egypt 2
Journey Through Egypt 2 is a continuation of the concepts discussed in Journey Through Egypt 1. In this second 20 hour intensive students will encounter an advanced basic overview, that expands upon the ideas of JtE-1.
We aim to study and understand the movements from each dance zones taught in JtE-1 from a variety of different perspectives
THE PERSPECTIVES USED
- Authentic non-performance “home-style” dance
- Local indigenous professional performers
- Regional government troupes
- National Government theater-stage troupes: both Reda and Kowmeyya
- The Dance as represented in Cairo’s Night Club Orientale Dance shows.
In addition to addressing movement and culture, we are introduced to many core Dance Ethnography concepts. During the process of preparation and discovery in JtE-2 we begin to form our personal interests and questions, the base of our future research and specializations and prepare for JtE 3 & 4, which take place in Egypt.
