The fourth installment of Danza Revolucion presented by Zombie Bazaar held at Night Rocker live music venue Friday, March 23, was an excellent showcase of the indeed wonderfully bizarre world of Tribal Fusion Belly Dance.
The showcase was a dark spin-off of traditional Egyptian Style Belly Dance with an eclectic underground soundtrack that proved these talented ladies can and do, dance to just about anything. The night’s choreography was supported by a wide variety of D.J. spun music such as Coco Rosie, Pentaphobe, Between the Buried and Me and The Squirrel Nut Zippers, to name just a few. The eclectic styling wasn’t limited to just great music, the different tribe’s techniques and flow, created an atmosphere of fantasy, gore (The Zombies), and intrigue. Visual artistry was taken to the next level expressed through custom costumes, makeup, and individualized styling.
It was not difficult to excite the crowd with performances that included silk fans, a spicy yet tasteful burlesque number and a few freestyles which invited the audience members to jump on the stage and join the dancers. A theatrical and macabre choreography by the Zombies topped off the evening which included glitter-blood, hissing, and mustaches all to the backdrop of energetic swing revival music!
Whether you are a newcomer or veteran to the up-and-coming style of Belly Dance, it would be hard not to agree that the overall performance commenced at the Night Rocker Friday night, was a successful display of a dance in revolution.
