Join us on Facebook Live for a virtual show featuring jaw-dropping acts from circus artists, firespinners, and bellydancers who have performed around the world!
Founded by Dawn Xiana Moon, Raks Inferno (a Raks Geek project) showcases the talents of bellydancers and object manipulators who are each stars in their own right: They've performed everywhere from Spain to Argentina and dance for hundreds of people every week. Company members include Kamrah, who has taught and performed at Tribal Fest (the largest fusion bellydance festival in the world); Lee Na-Moo, winner of the 2010 Chicago Oriental Dance Competition, member of modern/contemporary company Joel Hall Dancers, and touring cast with Bellydance Evolution; Gaea Lady, who won "Best Debut" and "Most Classic" at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in 2016 and is ranked internationally in the Top 50 Most Influential Burlesque Artists (2018, 2019); Michi Trota, Hugo Award winner and former board member of the Chicago Full Moon Fire Jams; and director Dawn Xiana Moon, who was named "Best Stage Performer" (2019, 2020) and "Best Dancer" (2019) by the Chicago Reader and recently appeared on Britain's Got Talent.
