Together Aradia and NagaSita join in alchemical heart vision
Creating “Auracle” A Temple Tribal Belly dance Company.
Focusing on the esoteric roots of Ritual Theatre & the pathways of Sacred Dance. This potent collaboration is created with the intention to inspire the divine within & dance the myths of remembrance. Auracle invokes the elements of earth magic, weaving a tapestry with traditional training & musing of the senses opening the gateway to Elysium.
These two internationally acclaimed dancers are merging to share their passions and high concept manifestations with the musical accompaniment of world renowned songstress Sonja Drakulich of Stellamara and sonic muse Imagika Om.
Auracle is blooming as a new project dedicated to the beauty of devotional artistry, integral visualization and transcendental fusion. Orginating from Portland’s very own Serpentine in 2008 these kindred souls join together again for the unveiling of this cosmic tale.

I will be performing 2 sets at the Star Theater Portland for the News From the Hip showcase alongside legendary dance sisters: Karolina Lux, Grace Constantine, Bevin Victoria, Erica Ryn, Joanna Castelli and Tatseena!!! There will by live music by The Lonesome Crows, and as always, this showcase is a celebration of the new issue release of Portland’s own full color bellydance magazine – News From the Hip! I am excited to announce that this issue contains unreleased images from a recent photo shoot I did withStellamara‘s Sonja Drakulich in collaboration with Black Lotus Clothing!!!
During my time in Budapest and up until Halloween I was immersed in a book about the life of Mata Hari, who I have been fascinated by for many years. I was inspired to portray her when presented with the Phantasmagoria theme for Tribal Weekend in the Ukraine. Here I am portraying the Spectre of Mata Hari. How she might appear and tell a story through movement to those who are summoning her from beyond the veil by means of seance or otherwise…. I did my research and wove many of her most famous poses from the historic photographs into this dance. Music is “Labyrinth” by Raquey and the Cavemen.
Stellamara brought down the house that night with world renowned guest dancers Rachel Brice, Colleena Shakti, Elise Morris and NagaSita. E O has jumped on board with Stellamara recently for an extremely exciting collaboration. You can catch us again at the Symbiosis Gathering on the Autumnal Equinox 2013!

The Mata Hari Hustle tour is over. I am deeply grateful for all that I have experienced on the road, new friendships, perspectives and directions. Ready to just sit back and watch the world go by for a spell.
Coming home just in time for the new moon Solstice was just what I needed. Quality time with my dearest friends and setting clear intentions for the future.
