(A Journey of Death and Rebirth in the country of the Pyramids) “Once upon a time I had a dream and I chased it." This Magical Book tells about my Adventure in Egypt, the Price we pay for our Dreams and the Wisdom we gather on the Journey up the Mountain. Almost killed, chased, shocked and amazed with an Egyptian (fascinating) underworld very few foreigners ever get to know. How did I end up living and performing in Egypt for almost a decade, succeeding in my career against all odds? How did I do it* when everyone yelled: YOU CAN’T?!
(a collaboration between Joana Saahirah and the Slovenian Photographer, Breda Jurecko.) What lies behind a stage curtain? What happens inside an Oriental Dancer, the eternal damned “odalisque”, beyond appearances? What does it mean to be a passionate Creator, a Woman who´s not afraid to be her full – untamed – self? This and other questions are answered in this book, a collaboration between Joana Saahirah, a world-known Oriental Dancer, and Breda Jurečko, a photographer with a very special perspective. This book brings the hidden, perhaps most interesting, side of an Oriental Dancer´s life, to the light.
