The Book of Lilith

Exquisite Corpse Dance Theatre presents The Book of Lilith at Salem Theatre Company this September

Book of Lilith

From their release:

Exquisite Corpse Dance Theatre performs its original theatrical bellydance production The Book of Lilith, based on the story of the ancient Middle Eastern goddess and demoness. From her beginnings as handmaiden to the Great Goddess, initiating men into Her mysteries through sacred eros, and her appearance as First Woman in the Garden of Eden, to her Fall from Grace to become a darkly serpentine, winged and fiery force of nature and the supernatural. Come with Lilith as she flies through the ages through dance and artistry.

Exquisite Corpse Dance Theatre

Here is what you really need to know:

The Exquisite Corpse Dance Theatre is led by Artistic Director Aepril Schaile she teaches bellydance here in Salem (and outside Salem for those not local), you can always find her around town.  Other troupe members include  Amelia Kurpeski, Libby Rowe, Shaina Rae, and Samara Martin.   You may know these ladies from Salem State, prior belly dance performances, some of the music events in town (most notably DARQ), Wiccan circles and most recently and regrettably  the news.

Go forth and witness the bellydance!
