Ankhst. A play about Pharaoh Akhenaten, by Clarinda Karpov. NYC 2011 productionl. When Dr. Alexandra Philips, passionate archeologist, encounters the spirit of the "Heretic" Pharaoh Akhnaton in a squalid tomb, she is challenged to reexamine his life and her own purpose: can she, like Akhnaton, risk all to rise a phoenix from the ashes of her life? In a colorful production set in ancient and modern Egypt, ANKHST features an original score of incidental music and Middle Eastern dance.
