Egypta: Myth, Magic and Mystery is a dance narrative which depicts the legacy of ancient Egypt, from the Creation Myth, to the death of Cleopatra. Egypta begins with the ominous Prophecy of Thoth, God of Wisdom and Writing, who predicts Egypt’s demise. The story unfolds as life emerges from the waters of the Nile River. The everyday activities of women, such as harvesting crops and weaving linen, are entwined with ancient Egyptian spiritual traditions and myths. The Goddesses Nuit, Sekhmet and Isis, and priestesses of Renenutet and Hathor, bless—and curse—the lives of humans. Egypta’s final moment recreates the Judgment scene in the Egyptian Book of the Dead, in which the heart of the deceased is weighed against the “feather of truth” to determine worthiness for eternal life
