Club Cairo on Tour 2018

The Serpent Slayer

A celebration of live music, dance and theatre from the Middle East and beyond. A super sensory experience aiming to inspire, educate and bring fun and fantasy to the audience. Our theatrical production "The Serpent Slayer" is an original story that combines the harsh realities of modern day life in the Middle East with the magic and fantasy of an Arabian fairy tale. The cast of dancers and musicians combine with poetic verse and multi-media projections to tell this tale. The entertainment then continues in the form of a live and light hearted set of traditional songs played by Club Cairo's musical ensemble who will be accompanied by a dazzling array of belly dance artists.
