***I CLAIM NO OWNERSHIP OF THIS SONG! I had nothing to do with the creation of it, and I am making no money off of it. It simply is a celebration of female archetypes, sharing my dance style and passions with the world, and appreciating the music of my favorite band, Caravan Palace, who has inspired me in countless ways, and changed my life and the way I see my art, and want to create beauty in the world! Caravan Palace does not endorse or support this video in any way; it is simply a fan video, by...a fan! Info about the project below!***
Karolina Lux is a theatrical fusion belly dancer based in Portland, Oregon. She fuses movement such as contemporary, street dance, ballet, acrobatics, theater/clowning, and more into her work. She also plays trumpet, sings, and composes for her own electro-swing music and dance project, Sepiatonic! She travels the world teaching and performing by herself and with various ensembles, sharing her love and joy of music, dance, and character work. When she first heard Caravan Palace's new album, she was so moved and inspired she called Portland photographer, Doug Safford (Hypnox Photography). They shot this project in one long, fun night, and Karolina learned Final Cut that month to be able to edit it herself! (Thanks to help from Jeremy Baron:) Caravan Palace's music helped her express the many characters and archetypes she feels inside her self as a woman, which is a complex thing in this society, balancing independence with connection, balancing tenderness and vulnerability, with strength and power. On stage she finds a home for all these things. This video helped her capture these characters who inspire her to be more comfortable in herself!
Caravan Palace is a French electro-swing band that has taken their genre to amazing new levels, and tours around the world sharing their innovative work.
