All aboard the Dis-Orientale Express, for an odyssey through alternative eastern dance and music, that celebrates the blending of eastern sounds and oriental dance with the grooves and tales of a digital era.
The event will feature the tribal and fusion bellydance of Laura Entwined & The Svadisthana Project (Entwined Bellydance), the sitar-drenched beats of Sikander, and the electro-pop Bollywood vibes of The Fifths.
[(Dis) Orientalism challenges colonial notions of the East in Art, in a world where cultural artforms and practices travel with shifting ethnoscapes and mutate along the way. (Dis) Orientale Express is a club event that showcases such fluid hybridisations of music and choreography.]
