Fri 22, 8 pm-9pm: Memories of a lord (France) is a dance and music show. Memories of a lord is a tale in three parts, an ode to the prowess and loneliness of the great figures of history. Each of the show’s three acts shows a different facet of the leader’s archetype: first hailed as a savior, then hated as a bully, before ultimately becoming nothing more than a shell of himself – the specter of the power and alienation. In this show choreographed by a renowned French artist Olivier Dubois, a corpus of thirty-five Egyptian amateur dancers revolve around the magnetic charms of the main performer Nicola Manzoni. The spectacular scene unfolds to the rhythm of Francois Caffenneexciting composition.

In this performance, the hero loves, struggles and lives to bring light and glory. The tyrant instills terror and barbarism in the world. These opposing forces find themselves caught in a dark battle. One will emerge victoriously triumphant; the other, succumbing to a cruel defeat.
