Frida’s Field: nose-to-tail lunch

On Saturday 4 June, Frida’s Field will pay homage to their holistically-reared Angus-Wagyu cattle by hosting a special five-course...

Award-winning and innovative choreographer Jill Parker has been called the ‘founder of the modern tribal fusion belly dance movement’. She has taught many tribal fusion icons, including Rachel Brice, and will perform for one night only at Ocean Shores Community Centre this Saturday.

Flaunting tattoos, a nose-ring, sometimes flowers in her hair or 1920s-inspired beaded headdress, Jill is not your typical belly dancer. Tribal is a somewhat edgy form of bellydance that melds ancient moves with modern music and stylings – it’s ‘anything goes’, which can result in quite stunning and original costuming and delightfully unexpected pairings of music and movement. One of Australia’s premier tribal dancers, Melusina, joins San Francisco’s Jill Parker, along with colourful Byron troupe The Barefoot Gypsies, Drumdance Bellydance and more at Illumina this Saturday. Tribal costuming and fair-trade, hand-worked silver hill-tribe adornments will also be for sale. Saturday at Ocean Shores Community Centre.

Tix at the door, $20/$8 plus booking fee. Tickets: www.stickytickets.com.au
