Moderne Interpretation einer uralten Tanzform: Caravanseray Vienna Tribal Bellydance Festival Wien, August 2017

A small fortress in the desert, surrounded by sand and night, but alive and colorful inside. This is a place where travellers meet, merchants sell their treasures, and entertainers from all directions dance, sing and tell stories.
We invite you to join the gathering, and bring your art to share with your fellow dancers, who are resting on their road.

For the seventh time now the caravan is coming to Vienna – by now the “Caravanseray Vienna” is Austria’s biggest and most talked about event for contemporary tribal and oriental fusion art forms and not to be missed!

Tribal Style

Imagine a tribe that migrated from India, through Orient all the way to Europe, and picked up various aspects of the regional dances and folklore of the countries they passed. It all came together in their own dance. Tribal Style Bellydance is a fusion of various dance styles. Its most important characteristic is the improvised dancing in a group, possible via cues and dance combinations with changing leader and formation. A tribal troupe is a group of strong proud women, that fell in love with this earthy, mystical and regal dance form.

The tribe grew and spread all over the globe, but the journey is still not over. The borders between countries, cultures and dance styles are open, Tribal was never happy in a closed box. Elements of Indian dance, flamenco, African dance, contemporary, hip hop, ballet, and many more have found their way into Tribal Style, as well as experiments with kung fu, butoh or yoga.
