I am over (and under!) the moon -- Cairo ShimmyQuake is next weekend! And I am thrilled to be teaching one of my favorite folkloric props, the shamadan. In this workshop, you will learn the traditional use of the shamadan in bridal procession & the fun theatrical ways it can be used today. Learn the Zaffa rhythm and appropriate music, get a short history lesson, discuss real flame vs. LED, fitting, care, feeding, & storage. Then put it all together in a short choreography.
