Fleuron Rouge Bellies at Buffalo Infringement Festival

The third annual Buffalo Infringement Festival will run from Thursday, July 24 to Sunday, August 3 and will feature 300 events, 200 plays, 40 venues and non-venues, bands, art installations, films, and parties in and around the Allentown neighborhood of Buffalo, New York.
The eleven day event promises to offer a broad range of eclectic, independent, experimental, and controversial art of all forms. Fleuron Rouge Fusion Belly Dance Troupe is just one of the many performers that will offer just that as they incorporate flavors of Old World, Egyptian, Turkish, American Tribal and Cabaret Belly Dance with a new Modern Fusion Belly Dance mixture. J. Nykkei, one of the co-directors of the Fleuron Rouge Fusion Belly Dance Troupe describes the troupe “as a belly dance group that incorporates a little bit of everything from Turkish to Lebanese and much more.”
During the Infringement Festival you can expect to see Fleuron Rouge performing with various other belly dancing troupes including: Zuut, Nadia Ibrahim, Bella Dea, and Samsara. “The following of belly dancing in Western New York is pretty large and once people get into it they love it,” Nykkei explained.
“Fleuron Rouge was founded in November 2007 officially, but many of the members have been dancing together since 2006. Currently, Fleuron Rouge’s performers are Samantha Shey, J. Nykkei, Nahara Mar, and Jessica Ashlee. For these members of Fleuron Rouge forming the troupe meant that they could create their own choreography” Nykkei said, which is exactly what you can expect to see at the Infringement Festival.
“People should attend this event who are looking to enjoy an uplifting dance; we are hoping to get people moving and shaking their hips” Nykkei said. Fleuron Rouge is sure to do just that as they are all about enjoying dance while bringing together artistic creativity and having fun.
