FireWater at Infusion Emporium
FireWater presents : Strength and Surrender
Sacred Earth belly Dance Retreat with Hannah Mi Anis
A locally developed world fusion dance event in its seventh year, this performance showcases some of the most innovative contemporary choreographers and dancers to have emerged from this scene. The work presented is far from the Middle Eastern dance that is its roots, fused with other cultural dances.

Performers include legendary Elizabeth Strong (San Francisco), with her blend of Bay Area bellydance and Turkish Roman. Colleena Shakti (India) who has immersed herself in Odissi and Indian culture for more than a decade. Ashley Lopez (Portland) famed for her fusion of bellydance and contortion; and Tribal Fusion bellydance sweetheart Eliana Hofmann (Germany).

Joining them is a host of UK and European-based talent.
This vibrant show pushes the boundaries of what’s expected of ‘bellydance’. Previous years' shows have sold out within days, so be sure to grab a ticket when you can. More information on the Infusion Emporium weekend: www.infusionemporium.com

‘We hold the lion’s paw whenever we dance….’ Hafiz

Strength and Surrender explores and celebrates the two opposing and intrinsic energies inherent within the dance, and the gifts they bring to us. Watch them weave; their aesthetics, their feel, the pull and rush of their polarity, their beautiful merging, and their power. ‘Nothing is so strong as gentleness. Nothing is so gentle as real strength’ ~ Saint Francis de Sales
