History

Abdel-Halim Caracalla founded the Caracalla Dance Theatre in 1970. He envisioned creating a new language in dance that merged Western and Oriental techniques. Abdel-Halim Caracalla was born in Baalbeck, a city known for its annual international cultural event, the Baalbeck International Festival. Caracalla studied in New York with Martha Graham in the 1960s. He continues to be the artistic director of the dance company and closely cooperates with his children, Alissar who is a choreographer and Ivan who is a director.[2]

Performances

The company's international debut was at the Festival of Osaka in Japan in 1972.[3] Since then, the company has traveled extensively all over the world, and in particular in North America and Europe.[1]
