“Set phasers to stunning.” – The Daily Mail (UK)

After the show: Enjoy a specialty cocktail, get a photo to take home, and meet the performers!

“Never seen a Wookiee bellydance? This can be remedied.” – MSN

Voted “Best Dance Troupe” (runner up) by the Chicago Reader, Raks Geek is the premiere bellydance, flow arts, and fire performance company by geeks for geeks – they broke the internet’s collective brain with a viral video of a Wookiee bellydancing to a four-piece Klingon band. Raks Geek is based in Chicago, but they’ve made waves nationally and internationally on MSN, The Daily Mail, and WGN-TV through their commitment to blend a high degree of artistic and technical mastery with fun, creativity, and themes from nerd culture.

“Absolutely electric from the moment they took the stage.” – Third Coast Review

“Performances that channel favorite characters from movies and video games.” – Chicago Tribune
