A captivating, colourful collective of ancient cultures. Come join the fun!
This will now be the 7th extravaganza presented by Club Cairo over the last few years. Each incarnation wishes to share new aspects within the genre, creating a fresh and exciting new experience every time. The aim is to inspire, educate and bring fun and fantasy to the audience.
Carmen Jones is the core producer. She has been working with musicians regularly teaching and performing for a number of years now in UK and abroad incl Ibiza, Turkey and Egypt.
She have drawn on this experience to create a show that is fueled by her passion and understanding of these art forms. Music, Dance and Vibrant Visuals combine to create a captivating display straight from the heart of Egypt.
Carmen’s dance is one of expression, expansion and fun!
Her years of experience have been a journey of self discipline, self discovery and adventure. She has travelled internationally, worked within the theatre and teaches and performs throughout the UK.
She has trained with many great teachers from Egypt, UK and USA and continues to develop her style by taking classes in contemporary dance. She hopes to convey an authentic Egyptian style with her own dynamic form of expression that truly resonates with the music.
Her real passion is working with ‘live’ music. Not only has she performed on several occasions with Hossam Ramzy and his Ensemble but also has guested with Brothers of the Baladi(USA) and has, since 2007, performed regularly with UK based bands Mazaj and Souk-Bab-El -Louk (formally the Arabic Balkan Gypsy Band).
Her close collaboration with the musicians have led her to gain a deep understanding of the connection between musician and dancer. It is this that she especially enjoys sharing with her students through her teaching.
As well as performing with the musicians she also runs workshops with them regularly working in schools and at many festivals nationwide (Glastonbury, WOMAD, Drum Camp Norfolk, Middle Eastern Music, Drum and Dance Camp nr Bath, Majma, The Big Chill). She also travels annually to the Sinai (Egypt) where she helps host a music, drum and dance holiday (www.arabicmusicband.com)
Her travels have also taken her and Mazaj to the Bergen Festival (Norway) and in the Summer of 2011 they did a short tour of Ibiza (Spain)
Locally, in Bath she hosts a bi annual event "Club Cairo" and also presents a performance night as part of the Bath Fringe festival.
