"Never seen a sexy Wookiee bellydance? This can be remedied." - MSN.com
A Time Out Chicago Critics' Pick, Raks Geek is the premiere bellydance, flow arts, and fire 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 playing an original song in Shyriiwook.
Raks Geek is based in Chicago, but they've made waves nationally and internationally on MSN, The Daily Mail, and UK Channel 4 TV through their commitment to blend a high degree of artistic and technical mastery with fun, creativity, and themes from nerd culture. The dancers and firespinners of Raks Geek have performed everywhere from Spain to Argentina and dance for hundreds of people every week, but they're also lifelong geeks who bring a love and expertise in science fiction, video games, technology, and comics.
Join the sexiest and most ridiculous nerds on the planet for a brand-new show paying homage to their favorite science fiction movies and series, complete with Geek Cocktails! A portion of proceeds will benefit Lane Tech Computer Science, to support Chicago teachers and students.
