Enjoy this clip from Arabized
The Center of Arabic Culture is proud to present Arabized, a unique and original theatrical presentation of Middle Eastern culture as seen through the eyes of world renown producer and performing artist Karim Nagi. Previously a local resident and highly renowned artist, Nagi comes back to Boston after 5 years of success on the international stage. His well-seasoned experience as a man of many talents serves as the basis for a show that is sure to be a hit. Over the years, he has demonstrated his skills time and again as a master drummer, composer, folk dancer, speaker, educator, recording artist, producer, choreographer, artistic director, and dj. (career highlights) He is a grand master at the art of fusion in more ways than one. First and foremost, his dance productions center around choreography that is totally at one with the music, a unity he views as sacred with respect to any artistic work involving sound and movement. He is also adept at the effective intermingling of traditional and modern styles of dance and music from many diverse cultures, all within a single work. Arabized is a virtual showpiece of all of Nagi’s highly developed and varied skills within a cultural extravaganza of music, dance, and spoken word. A vast array of colorful Middle Eastern folk cultures are brought to life on the stage through Nagi’s inventive re-interpretations of traditional performance arts in modernized form, featuring the incorporation of elements of electronica and other Western music genres.
This event also serves as a kind of cd release celebration, honoring Karim Nagi’s latest recording which shares its name with the show. The music itself is world fusion featuring various combinations of Middle Eastern, Latin and Asian genres and Arabic-style reinterpretations of well-known classical compositions. During his original tenure in Boston, this highly accomplished and esteemed ambassador of Arabic culture gave rise to no less than 100+ local events, including the long running series entitled “Arabesque Mondays” formerly held at the infamous Club Passim. Find out what Nagi’s current mega-project is all about and be prepared to be highly entertained during a performance of Arabized.
