Tribal bellydance meets flamenco and Irish dance this weekend.
OTBS instructor Miriam Embla is performing in a dance theatre piece called Long Journeys, Brief Encounters; a collaboration with Cecilie Stensrud (Irish dance) and Bellali Austria (flamenco). It tells of three very different women who, through their respective dance forms, encounter one another in ways that are playful, poetic and maybe even a little bit competitive. In Long Journeys… dance opens up new spaces for interaction and expression.
