The Kandake Tribal & Experimental Belly Dance Tribe New Website

We just want to put the word out—the Kandake, great friends of ours and gorgeous performers who we’ve shared many a festive dance floor with in the past, have their new website up and listings of upcoming shows. We can’t wait to work with them again!



The Kandake is a new dance-theatre collective that combines social activism and philanthropy with folkloric, modern, theatrical and experimental movement. 

The original Kandake were the queens of ancient Ethiopia, Sudan, and parts of Egypt who were the political, military, and spiritual leaders of their societies. 

The women of The Kandake aim to continue the legacy of their predecessors by being catalysts for social change, priestesses of a higher purpose, and field marshals ushering in a better world. Thus, a percentage of every Kandake-run show is donated to a humanitarian cause.

Interaction with the audience and storytelling is characteristic of our work. While some of what we do may be disturbing, absurdist, graphic, or “dark” our purpose is to rupture comfort zones, wake the unconscious, and inspire critical thinking. Just don’t fall into the habit of trying to find “meaning” in every show–sometimes we just want to dance!

If you are interested in booking The Kandake please contact us at
