Anaheed has participated in the EEMED shows and highly recommends these quality DVDs! As stated by Amara, the show's originator:
The purpose of An Evening of Experimental Middle Eastern Dance is to create a space for Middle Eastern dancers and belly dancers to perform their unusual or controversial works. The concerts consist of vignettes that are constructed, choreographed, and performed by a variety of dancers. The pieces, based in the Middle Eastern dance idiom, make present borders, edges, and standard representations visible by pushing past them. They also bring to light the often covered-up and neglected issues of gender roles, cultural appropriation, the ambiguity of eroticism and sexuality, the role of the audience, and stereotyping.
These DVDs feature performances by such great dancers as Amara, Anaheed, Desert Sin, Tandemonium, and more!
