a film by Damien Fritsch, 26'Recognized today as well as other dances, belly dancing has spread beyond the East and reached Europe. But what does that dance mean when danced by European women?
What is the mystery of their dreams about waves of body and light veils? Through connivance and laughing, shimmering colors and spellbinding music, they use to seduce themselves to express their own feminity. Women turn into Oriental princesses during a show and its preparation, and dream about One Thousand and One Nights.
