Caracalla Dance Theater Sailing the Silk Road

Date: March 15-17 - 7:30 pm

Venue: National Centre for the Performing Arts, Beijing

In 1968, Abdel Halim Caracalla founded what would evolve into the first and most prominent professional dance theater of the Middle East, creating a body language based upon the Martha Graham dance disciplines blended with Arabic heritage, thus creating a unique "Caracalla Dance Style".

The Caracalla created over fourteen ballets and musicals including adaptations of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Taming of the Shrew and Much Ado About Nothing.

Recipient of numerous acclaimed awards and decorations from Arabic and International leaders, the Caracalla has the honor to collaborate with some of the most internationally renowned artists that are pioneers and leaders in the world of theater. Under the auspices of great leaders and with the admiration of a vast audience, the company has succeeded in the establishment of its own theater home to the dancers and guardian to over forty years of invaluable and extensive archival research in dance, music, costumes, traditions and Arabic heritage. Theatre is also home to "Studio Caracalla", a dance school teaching and illuminating today's youth for an artistic future.
