A new piece of dance theatre devised by Moonwalker dancer Patrick Alan
Esther: Queen of Egypt is a funky, modern twist on the story of the biblical heroine set in a modern day New York ruled by ancient Egyptians. It bristles with dance styles from belly dancing and hip-hop to jazz and waacking.
Enter the court of King Harod, who must pick a wife from a group of beautiful women. Each must dance – both solo and against the palace’s own male and female dancers – to win his hand. But Harod only has eyes for one. The show features a diverse soundtrack and live accompaniment.
