"Bellydance Intersections" is a holistic perspective on dance and movement – a seamless tapestry of belly dance, contemporary, folkloric, ballet, and more, featuring international oriental dance artist Gyöngyi Stúber of Hungary with a rare intersection of talent, including The Allegro Dance Company (Allegro PDX, Portland, Oregon), Brittany Mattox & Coalescence Dance Company, Akahsia, Suzanna, and Ava Raqs Bellydance. In a world focused on difference and segmentation, Bellydance Intersections highlights crossover, collaboration, and unification. Circles, waves, spirals, vibrations, and punctuated movements transcend multiple styles, yielding fresh new inspirations.
This high quality production takes place on July 6th in the exquisite Chapel Performance Space at Good Shepherd Center, and includes a brief post-show Q&A with audience and artists. There is also a kickoff house concert with live music by House of Tarab on July 3rd; workshops with the amazing Gyöngyi on July 4th, 5th, 7th, and 10th, and more!
