This video is making the rounds on some non belly dance sites and you may be asked to comment on it by friends and family as a result. Its probably best from about 1:37- 2:24.
It is bought to you by Raqs Geek a Chicago based performance that first came to my attention when I saw a picture of a dancer in a very cool tardis skirt. This is from their website:-“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… A Wookiee learned to bellydance. The TARDIS discovered fan veils. Conan the Barbarian threw fire at Cylons, strange creatures jumped on Tetris blocks, and a Klingon challenged a Starfleet officer to a duel. A cast of performers from Read My Hips tribal bellydance and the Chicago Fire Tribe showcase original takes on their favorite geek subjects. One part art, two parts comedy, and three parts sexy, Raks Geek is alternately silly, beautiful, and seductive. These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.”
Suffice to say that traditionalists will hate this. It is very hard on the ears too – clearly I need to take a Klingon music appreciation class! It did make me laugh though so I thought I would share. Plus, the wookie can really dance! I feel I also need to say that my previous post on body hair was aimed at humans and not wookies……..
What do you think? Do you like crazy fusion ideas?
