Raqs Revolution is an award-winning revolutionary dance show, hosted by Torkomada, to show the varied, fascinating ethnic dances of the Middle East and North Africa to the general public, and give “a bit of home” to Middle Eastern immigrants in Harlem, NY. Because of recent rising anti-immigrant sentiments in the U.S., this project is necessary to help break down stereotypes, misunderstandings, and hostilities towards Arabic culture. This dance project also addresses the necessity of empowering men and women through dance as a way of self-expression, high self-esteem, and cultural expression.
