Bellydance Unbound is an amazing, one of a kind project that I have the honour to be a part of...and the poster girl for! We are still in the process of raising funds for the video, and will begin shooting in December 2011. Please visit the production website, www.bellydanceunbound.com, and our fundraising website at indigogo, http://www.indiegogo.com/Bellydance-Unbound
What is 'Bellydance Unbound'?
'Bellydance Unbound' is a performance video featuring the best in dark tribal fusion bellydance. For the first time, the dancers will be removing themselves from the stage or out of the studio and performing original pieces in a variety of locations of the individual dancerʼs choosing. The video will feature ten dancers in nine separate performances.
Why are they doing it?
To allow the dancers to showcase their style of bellydance in a manner that will allow their performances to be more nuanced and emotive than before. The proximity of the camera will allow them to use more minute gestures and expressions that would normally be lost when used during a stage performance. They can dance in an environment that adds to the story or emotion of their piece without worry that a set piece will block them from the view of the audience. They can choreograph a piece without worrying about the edges of a stage or the walls of a studio stopping them from the range or direction of movement they want. The dancers will also have the opportunity to even use the features of their chosen location in their choreography.
Who are the dancers involved in the project?
Currently, the dancers involved in the project are: Ariellah (www.ariellah.com), The Lady Fred (www.theladyfred.com), Jodi Waseca, Isa Shisha, Lisa Hyde (www.tribalzillz.com), Natalie Nayun (www.nayundance.com), Raven Ebner, Vulgaire, Doreet and Dusty Paik.
