Bellydance Evolution Presents Alice in Wonderland

Bellydance Evolution Presents Alice in WonderlandThe Magical Tale Re-Imagined Through Theatrical World-Fusion Dance

Uniting Eastern and Western Culture with Middle Eastern,
Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Tribal, and Acrobatic Dance

Friday, April 4, 2014, 8:00 p.m., Spreckels Theatre, San Diego

Celebrating, exploring, and uniting Middle Eastern and Western dance for the 21st century, Bellydance Evolution presents their latest production with the world premiere of “Alice in Wonderland” at the Spreckels Theatre in San Diego on Friday, April 4, 2014 at 8pm. Founded in 2009, world renowned choreographer Jillina Carlano creates a revolutionary approach to the whimsical and magical tale, re-imagining the colorful, iconic - and dare some say, "mad" - characters through the language of world fusion dance. The company takes a revolutionary approach to the art of dance, presenting theatrical dance shows with a storyline, much like a ballet. Featuring a cast of 20 international performers who are passionate about their art in the fields of Middle Eastern dance and music, break dance, theatrical hip-hop, contemporary, tribal and fusion dance, each bring their own unique vision to the production.

“I am thrilled to debut my newest production of “Alice in Wonderland” in beautiful San Diego. Not only is San Diego my Mother’s hometown, it is also the centrally located between our two major fan bases: Los Angeles and Mexico,” exclaimed Jillina.

Bellydance Evolution has performed to sold out crowds in over twenty different countries spanning North & South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. The company was featured at the 2012 Mawazine festival in Morocco, performing for the Queen of Morocco. With the success of their residency program, Bellydance Evolution has established ensemble company members in the USA, Europe, Asia and Latin America, which allows this large scale production to perform all over the globe.

Bellydance Evolution’s “Alice in Wonderland” promises to take the audience on a spectacular journey that will excite both mainstream audiences and dance enthusiasts. Based on the “Alice in Wonderland” book, the performance is appropriate for all ages.

Continuing the successful formula established by past productions such as Immortal Desires and Dark Side of the Crown, the Bellydance Evolution ensemble performs to a theatrical score commissioned from film and television composer Paul Dinletir, owner/director of L.A.-based audiomachine, who has written and produced trailer music for The Hobbit, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and Avatar.
