Productions by Suzanna & Friends
Belly Dance Off
Suzanna frequently collaborates with world class performers, presenting belly dance with a broad spectrum 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. Many of these have been productions under her direction, which began in 2004. As these grew to involve more and more artists and production support, her Suzanna & Friends team organically evolved. Belly Dance Off and Cinderella-A Global Story became her two premiere live events, involving a variety of artists, including dancers, musicians, speakers, visual and theatre artists.
Written and directed by Suzanna Davis, Cinderella - A Global Story presents world dance theatre through the universal and multicultural story of Cinderella, showcasing over 20 local and international artists in a beautiful outdoor park setting.
