Der fliegende Teppich (The Flying Carpet), (Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany)

May 10-12, 2019

What is the Flying Carpet? The dance festival for Bonn, Cologne and the Rhein Sieg Kreis and, of course, all others who have the same passion as us, the Oriental Dance. Where does one get such an idea? The Flying Carpet has existed since 2015, when it was a rather spontaneous and very small idea to drum up more dancers out of a longing. In 2016 the carpet suddenly grew and the space had to be enlarged. When we planned the Flying Carpet in 2017 at the latest, it was clear that we had flown beyond our goal. The idea of a kind of regulars’ table for oriental dancers became a completely different kind of event. Since this year it is really not imaginable any more, the Flying Carpet deserves the name Festival and will continue to grow. Once a year it will take place in Bonn with the aim of bringing dancers and dance enthusiasts together and celebrating this wonderful passion. Plans are already underway for 2019.

Roma Tribal Meeting: 2019 Edition (Rome, Italy) May 24-26, 2019

Roma Tribal Meeting: 2019 Edition (Rome, Italy)

May 24-26, 2019

For centuries, the gathering of community has been the driving force of evolution. We are encouraging artists to congregate in Rome with the idea of sharing and developing an international community based on traditions and innovations of Tribal Belly Dance.

Within our Tribal Belly Dance Network, individual and group expressions give light to new styles and new artistic and captivating creations. American Tribal Style® and Tribal Fusion are at the crossroads of change in the panorama of contemporary belly dance throughout the world. From this consciousness of change, we aspire to harness and nurture artistic expression during the Roma Tribal Meeting. It is the first gathering in Italy where ideas of authenticity and fusions simply provide an opportunity for growth and awareness of this dance movement; a moment where musicians and dancers can collaborate and acknowledge their own artistic research.

The Roma Tribal Meeting offers the opportunity for artists and companies to be part of a gathering through cohesive workshops and exhibitions showcasing their most recent creations. All workshops are held at San Lo’ studio – a space specifically conceived to create and promote multicultural dance and art events, in the heart of Rome. In short, the Roma Tribal Meeting is a small festival made with love, since 2010. All tribes are welcome and invited.

This year’s artists include

  • Marta Eres & Maytz
  • Geneva Bybee
  • ATS® Sisters Collective
  • Natasha Korotkina
  • Gudrun Herold
  • Silvia Orchidaceae
  • Philippa Moirai
  • Francesca Pedretti & Elena Fi-Fi Wei-Dupont
