Where music and movement become one, where ancient and modern blend, where East and West merge. Arabesque is a dance and music ensemble that embodies creative contemporary sensibilities steeped in a rich and ancient Arabian tradition. Seventeen male and female dance artists directed by Yasmina Ramzy and eight acoustic musicians directed by Bassam Bishara and Suleiman Warwar weave together seamlessly the infinite and ornate intricacies of refined and redefined Arab art. Soaring emotional waves, smouldering passion, earthy raw spirit and unearthly spirituality; all are experienced memorably in an Arabesque performance.
