Two years ago, while poring over a favorite deck of Tarot cards, Zoe Jakes was inspired to create a work of art as powerful as the cards themselves. Finally, after years of creative process, House of Tarot has been created; placing the captivating energy of the Tarot deck onto members of the belly dance community. House of Tarot is true performance art, a mutable dance theater performance imbued with ritual and the mysteries of Fate. The archetypes of the Tarot come to life in dynamic choreographies, stunning set design, various theatrical props, and an original score of music by Zoe Jakes. Throughout the show, the haunting healing of the High Priestess, the seductive glamour of the Snake, the chilling chords of Death, live drumming, and more, fill the stage in a story of human fate and archetypes. The House of Tarot cast is comprised of a variety of spectacular performers, each bringing their own unique qualities and training to the production. They look forward to bringing you an event that will immerse the senses and excite the mind.
