About the Tanoura Dancer/Whirling Derwish:
The Tanoura Skirt dancer is the Egyptian theatrical version of the Whirling Dervish. The dancer spins for a long time and does some tricks with his skirt. When the dancer moves himself, he is like the sun and the dancers around him like the planets. The dancer unties and removes 2 different skirts during the finale. Their various roundabouts symbolize the succession of the four seasons. When the dancer raises his right arm up and points his left arm down, this represents the joining of earth and heaven together. When he turns himself around, it is said that he enters a trance-like state, trying to become light and go up to heaven.
