History of the Mosaic
For over the past decade, Ishra and Invoketress have been pushing the creative envelope by organizing and hosting their much-anticipated Bellydance fusion show – a production that takes Bellydance and fuses it with the many other dance forms that exist. This highly acclaimed show was formerly known as the “Mish Mash Belly Bash.” In 2012, Invoketress changed the name to “MOSAIC” Bellydance Fusion Show to represent the melding of artistic expressions and dance styles with Bellydance. The show is also now held every two years in order to properly prepare for and create outstanding numbers for a truly memorable, professional, high caliber show. Guest performers are carefully selected by their talent and innovation. Each show has a theme that focuses the show’s pieces and to build context.
Invoketress prides itself on presenting the finest in Bellydance Fusion from Southwestern Ontario.
