The award-winning Mosaic Dance Theater Company (MDTC), based in Glen Ridge, NJ, in collaboration with WP Presents!, celebrates Women’s History Month and women’s contributions to world culture by taking you on a journey through the ages, in Through Her Eyes: Women of the Near East Through the Ages, a joyous multimedia dance experience.
Travel through millennia to meet two historical women of the ancient Middle East, who, despite struggles and repression, triumphed over cultural and religious obstacles to attain greatness in their respective lives and times. Enheduanna, the poet/priestess of Mesopotamia, and the first non-anonymous author in history, and Hatshepsut, the female Pharaoh/King of Ancient Egypt. Their stories, told in MDTC’s signature style of dance/story theater, embody the majestic power and resilience of the human spirit, providing an illuminating look at women's achievements in ancient times.
Enter a world “beyond the image.” Painters of the 19th century art academies of Europe were fascinated by the landscapes and the people of the Near East, and most especially, the culture and way of life in these lands. A selection of paintings of the Orientalist genre are brought to life through traditional styles of Middle Eastern dance.
Be captivated by the exuberance and grace of engaging folkloric women’s dances of North Africa and the Middle East. Lavish costumes, virtuosic choreography, and sparkling storytelling make Through Her Eyes one event you won’t want to miss.
