Productions by Suzanna & Friends
Suzanna and her team have been bringing high quality international dance and music events to the NW since 2004, 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. Her approach is highly collaborative, expanding beyond the recital format to include story and multiple synchronized dynamics, including audience participation. She is also passionate about attracting a broad spectrum and diverse audience.
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.
