Phoenix Belly Dance presents Art Raqs (pronounced 'Art Rocks'), a show dedicated to showcasing the artworks of the Middle East through dance (raqs)...
Each performance is inspired by textiles, still lifes, portraits, sculptures, metalworks and architecture from different regions across the Middle East and spanning several centuries.
The images will be projected and the art works will be described to the audience with narratives around how the imagery has influenced the choreographies. This show is truly art inspired by art, and Phoenix Belly Dance's students, teachers and professional dancers are excited to share their passion with you.
Allow yourself to sit back, relax, and let the visual feast begin!
This is a charity fundraiser in aid of North Shore Women’s Centre , which provides a wide variety of services for women and families in need, including a free legal clinic, counselling, social services and classes. There will be silent auctions before the show and during the intermission and 100% of proceeds from these auctions will go to the Centre, helping them to continue their amazing work.
