Cleopatra, the last Pharaoh of ancient Egypt, left behind two daughters: Selene and Aelia. After 30 years, they return to Egypt to unveil their mother’s secret burial site. Selene has mastered the dark arts of magic in Rome and resurrects her mother seeking the gift of Isis. However Selene’s deep desire for retribution turns savage as she manipulates both her sister and mother through mind and movement. Swept into her own spell, the result is a surrealistic nightmare.
The first episode directed by Craig Baurley in a series entitled “Queen of the Sky, A Demon Ballet”. Anne-Marie Talmage (America’s Got Talent, Diavolo) combines her highly athletic movement practices with choreographic support by Lydia Purves-Ware. Joe Kaplan composed the equally virtuosic score with Cellist April Guthrie and Violist/ Violinist Lauren Baba. Livya Howard-Yashar lends her voice to breathe life into the creatures and performance. Official Selection of the 2020 Dance Camera West.
