Presenting belly dance and its intersections with a variety of styles, from traditional to contemporary, and in partnership with a variety of agencies such as King County 4Culture, Seattle International Dance Festival, Teatro ZinZanni, Seattle Theatre Group, Bellevue Arts Museum, and more, Suzanna's approach is highly collaborative and immersive, with a focus on audience experience and participation. She is passionate about art as a medium to bring together a diverse gathering.
Bellydance Intersections, co-presented with Ava Raqs Bellydance, is a holistic perspective on dance and movement -- a seamless tapestry of belly dance, contemporary, folkloric, ballet, and more, featuring international oriental dance artist Gyöngyi Stúber of Hungary with a rare intersection of talent, including The Allegro Dance Company (Portland, Oregon), Brittany Mattox & Coalescence Dance Company, Akahsia, Suzanna, and Ava. In a world focused on difference and segmentation, Bellydance Intersections highlights crossover, collaboration, and unification. Circles, waves, spirals, vibrations, and punctuated movements transcend multiple styles, yielding fresh new inspirations.
