Artist's Description

I took this photo in Cairo.The light was poor and I was a long way back from the stage but I tried to capture some of the frenetic energy of the dancers.

The Mevlevi Order of the Mevleviye are the Sufi order founded in Turkey (then Konya) in the 13th Century. They are also known as the Whirling Dervishes due to their famous practice of whirling as a form of remembrance of God. Dervish is a common term for an initiate of the Sufi path, the whirling is known as the Sema and the participants are known as semazens.
