Cleopatra, CEO promises to be an "over the top" feast of dance, music, and theatre, for the distinguished Cleopatra has returned to reign from Southern California! As athletic dancers create magic in and around the former corporate space, the audience will experience a dance performance unique to downtown.
Th show references everything from ancient Egypt to the 1980s TV show Dynasty. The narrative-driven work features 11 scenes, 13 dancers, a flautist and even an opera singer. The show works with the 1970s architectural interior by making it symbolize male executive wealth and power.
