This will be a Halloween themed show unlike anything you have seen before!
Raks Terror is about pushing boundaries and telling stories through belly dance. This will be a showcase of Chicago (and elsewhere!) belly dance talent and artistry. The show features all styles of belly dance. All pieces are horror, ritual, dark, or campy themed, just in time for Halloween!
Kamrah is now accepting applications for performances for Raks Terror IV.
What they are looking for:
- Pieces must be a fully fleshed idea. When pitching for a show, the concept must be clear. “I’d really like to do something scary!” is not a fully fledged concept.
- NO BLOOD DRIPPING. If you must have blood (or other fluids) for the piece, it must not be splashed, sprayed, or dripped off of you onto the floor. We cannot stain the floor of the venue.
- No fire, sorry!
- Pieces can be dark and disturbing, however pieces that involve themes of racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, etc. are not acceptable. Songs with these themes are also not acceptable.
- Pieces portraying violence are okay, but anything extreme needs to be artistically relevant.
- No children allowed. This is a 21+ event and children will not be allowed into the show even as performers.
Interested? The application is here!
