Cassandra’s Mezza – A Delectable Sampling of Jawaahir Dances
Cassandra and Jawaahir Dance Company are proud to present Cassandra’s Mezza, performed in a most comfortable and intimate setting – our very own Jawaahir Studio Theater! A mezza is the large sampling of delicious Near Eastern appetizers, which this show delivers in dance and music! Featuring live music with the virtuosic Arabic band, Amwaaj, led by drummer Tim O’Keefe, with his wife, violinist Laura Harada. Mr. O’Keefe has earned renown as the finest ethnic percussionist in the Upper Midwest. Our unique concert of dance and music celebrates traditional and contemporary choreographies by Artistic Director, Cassandra Shore, and includes two dances from the world-class guest artist, Samantha Burnstein. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
