Bellydance Evolution: Alice in Wonderland
The setup certainly sounds like someone went down a certain rabbit hole or nibbled the wrong mushroom: Combine belly dance with street dance to retell the story of Alice in Wonderland. Yet mixing Middle Eastern dance with contemporary dance forms is exactly what the 20-member Bellydance Evolution and choreographer Jillina Carlano are all about. The 5-year-old troupe combines contemporary dance, acrobatics, street dance, theatrical hip-hop and tribal dance to present narrative stories. Here they take on the Lewis Carroll classic with an original score by Paul Dinletir and Ozzy Ashkenazi's live beats. After all, what could be more appropriate than a hip-hop white rabbit?
