It is an Egyptian "Tanoura" show inspired by the mystical practices of the dervishes, which has turned into popular folklore, presented in many places in Egypt, including the archaeological Ghouri Palace Theater, which dates back to Sultan qansuh Al-Ghouri, the last Mamluk sultan in Egypt.
"I choose the colors and shapes that adorn theTanoura myself," said Mohammed Adel, who inherited the art of tanoura dancing from his father and grandfather, on Al-Mu'izz Street next to the Thuraya neighborhood, moments before he took to the stage with his purple skirt decorated in green and yellow colors.
According to some, Tanoura can be described as an evolved representation of Sufi whirling dervishes, an important part of Sufism, known for its mysticism and spiritual mode of worship.
