Little Egypt Doesn’t Dance Here Anymore  Nahed Mansour (Toronto)
26 Jan 2019 to 24 Feb 2019

Little Egypt Doesn’t Dance Here Anymore centers on the iconography and mythology that surrounds the historical figure of Little Egypt, the stage name of the first belly dancer to premier the dance form in North America during the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.  Comprised of installation, drawings, and video elements, the works in the show play off the fact that for over 100 years, dancers in North America have directly and indirectly used Little Egypt’s act to replicate, reproduce, and reinterpret belly dancing as we know it today.
