Shanazel is known for dancing with her razor sharp humor -- a creative prop, indeed.Hmm. You could use a sword fish. Or a veiled threat. Or wings of eagles (warning: possession of raptor parts is illegal in the USA). Or boi balls (ooo, how rude). How about penlight flashlights instead of candles?
the picture idea is unique... do you mean tear them up before hand or tear them during the dance? and what kind of pictures?Shanazel is known for dancing with her razor sharp humor -- a creative prop, indeed.
I have danced with a fake cake on my head. Twas interesting, and appropriate for the song and the venue.
I also was once told I could only perform in a halloween hafla if I dressed like a Nun. So, after some consideration, I realized Nun's habits were a bit like beledi dresses. Nuns are reputed to carry rulers (and threaten people with them), so I extrapolated that into a metal yardstick, and danced as if it were a cane, complete with swinging and balancing on my head. "Goody Two Shoes" by Adam Ant seemed so appropriate at the time. A little editing for brevity, and I had my opening number. At the break between the songs, I whipped off my wimple and danced to "exotic" by Mezdeke. Oh, yes, I did. somewhere there are pictures to prove it, I am sure. Oh, and I almost forgot the kicker: I pinned a note on my wimple stating "(So and So) made me do it!"
Well, having listened to it, no prop screams out. Closest I can come up with is to have a lot -- I mean a LOT of photographs to tear up and scatter on the stage. Not really a prop, more acting out, and something you really need to get the blessing of the stage manager for first.
Either way. The music inspires thoughts of ripping and of fluttering pieces. And hammers, per Duvet's thought.the picture idea is unique... do you mean tear them up before hand or tear them during the dance? and what kind of pictures?
That was Sashi from Ascend Tribal, and this was part of her introduction to the piece-The worst prop ever can be found on youtube, it was a dancer who had some sort of 'wings' pierced through her skin on her back (that was done right before the performance) and danced with those.
I love the fact of the light cubes that seems like the best bet for us right now.. that or fans.. not sure yet
It may not be many people's idea of fusion, and personally I'm not convinced the wings added anything to the actual bellydance, as they appear to limit her upper body movement
that sound like it hurts.The worst prop ever can be found on youtube, it was a dancer who had some sort of 'wings' pierced through her skin on her back (that was done right before the performance) and danced with those. Absolutly weird and scary. I think it was just to impress people and to get well known, which she did (the well known bit).
