“Never seen a sexy Wookiee bellydance? This can be remedied.” – MSN
Founded by Dawn Xiana Moon in 2012, Raks Geek is the premiere bellydance, flow arts, and fire performance company by geeks for geeks. They’re based in Chicago, Illinois, but they’ve made waves nationally and internationally on The Daily Mail, UK Channel 4 TV, and Cheezburger.com through their commitment to blend a high degree of artistic and technical mastery with fun, creativity, and themes from nerd culture. If you ever saw a video of a Wookiee bellydancing to a four-piece Klingon band playing an original song in Shyriiwook, you’ve seen their work.
Their dancers and firespinners have performed everywhere from Spain to Canada to Argentina and dance for hundreds of people every week, but they’re also lifelong geeks who bring a love and expertise in science fiction, video games, technology, research science, and comics into their shows. See them live this year at Gen Con, in the Chicago area at the Uptown Underground, or online!
