• About the Poster
The Egypta poster features a depiction of Ruth St. Denis in a pharonic-inspired performance. In the early 1900s, Ruth St. Denis was one of the first professional modern American dancers to bring oriental themes and aesthetics into the theater. Although her perspective and interpretation was informed by colonialism, she was a pioneer in using Eastern motifs, costumes, stories, and movements.
• What is Orientalis according to April Rose?
It’s a romantic malady that has grabbed a hold of many people throughout time who have seen the beautiful art of bellydance, in its many forms. Like the lost city of Atlantis, Orientalis is a fantasy, an imagined place that has inspired some very beautiful art. Art that is situated in a context of global power dynamics between east & west. It’s an imagined place, and state of being that must be questioned as it is celebrated.
