Enta Omri – Special European Engagement
October 29, 2016, 8pm
Enta Omri—Arabic for “you are my life”—is a contemporary belly dance ballet, showcasing Arabic music and its physicalization through belly dance. Choreographed by the highly-influential and innovative dancer Suhaila Salimpour (USA), to classic Arabic music arranged and recorded by her long-time collaborator, musician Ziad Islambouli (Lebanon), this production is an intimate and emotional journey through a lifetime of love and loss.
Enta Omri showcases the artistic and technical possibilities of belly dance as a genre, shunning clichés and popular imagery. As Suhaila’s intent is for audiences to witness this intimate and distinctive production live and in person, she will not be releasing any video recording of it. Host Maëlle, the Salimpour School’s ambassador in Brussels, therefore decided to bring Enta Omri to Europe, to give lovers of Arabic music or dance the opportunity to watch it. Do not miss this exclusive opportunity to experience Enta Omri!
