EXCLUSIVE APPEARANCE IN EUROPE
Enta Omri—Arabic for “you are my life”—is a contemporary belly dance ballet, showcasing Arabic music and its physicalization (visuall translation) 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!
The Suhaila Dance Company (SDC) is comprised of some of the most highly trained dancers in belly dance and is at the forefront of both modern and classical belly dance performing art. Founded in 1996 under the artistic direction of Suhaila Salimpour, SDC is based in the Salimpour School’s home studio, close to San Francisco, and performs across the United States. Members must hold a Level 3 certification in the Suhaila Salimpour format and also participate in Bal Anat, the folkloric and fantasy belly dance troupe begun by Jamila Salimpour in 1968 and under the direction of Suhaila Salimpour since 1999.
