About Samia Gamal : The Oriental Dancer
“The oriental dancer is Samia Gamal. She is an internationally renowned Egyptian oriental dancer. Her performance (1940-1960) gained worldwide recognition and admiration for modernising oriental dance. I have tried to imagine how she would feel about her career as an oriental dancer in a society that disrespects dancing as a practice, and in a political system that does not promote creativity.”
