Dance your demons. Shake them out. We all want to deny our darker side, but even this act of denial gives it power. So integrate, accept, embrace. If we’re on the road to hell, we might as well enjoy the ride.

More about the show: Paved with Good Intentions features 6 separate works Smiling Lune’s signature theatrical bellydance style. Presented with humor and grace, with subjects as far flung as Dante’s Inferno and the raw sexuality of succubi, Paved with Good Intentions isn’t afraid to go “there”, whether “there” is dancing one’s personal demons, concepts of summoning or hell, or even the darker side of Shakespeare. All music is performed by local musicians performance artists: the DTs, Al Amarja featuring Hanakia Zedek, Keith Spears, Scott Keever, and Beth Kinderman & the Player Characters. Smiling Lune is the Twin Cities’ premier theatrical fusion bellydance company. Led by director Kalila Indivar, Smiling Lune Dance blends the isolations of Middle Eastern dance with a variety of influences to produce a performance that is uniquely ours. We strive to push the boundaries of belly dance and challenge modern perceptions of this beautiful art form. This is not your mama’s belly dance.
