Erynias Tribe is a Birmingham based belly dance and fire performance troupe with an eye towards the deconstruction of boundaries within genres. Every form of expression, particularly within the medium of dance, has value and is worthy of exploration, from fire breathing and poi to classical ballet. In that same spirit, Erynias Tribe has a keen interest in performance in accessible and variegated venues; Again, deconstructing that notion of where an exotic medium such as belly dance “belongs.”
Performing alongside rock bands and other disparate performance outfits rather than subsisting solely within those outlying venues that would generally be assigned to them is the perfect trojan horse, a way to quietly impact the perception of dance and it’s place within the community.
