Join us for cosplay and wonder in an intimate speakeasy - we pay tribute to fandoms from Star Wars to Marvel, Doctor Who to Silent Hill with artists who have performed around the world. These shows often sell out!

Voted "Best Dance Troupe" (runner up) by the Chicago Reader, Raks Geek is the premiere bellydance, flow arts, and fire company by geeks for geeks. We're based in Chicago, Illinois, but we've made waves nationally and internationally on MSN, WGN-TV, The Daily Mail, WCIU, and the Chicago Tribune through our commitment to blend a high degree of artistic and technical mastery with fun, creativity, and our favorite themes from nerd culture. Our dancers and firespinners have performed everywhere from Germany 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, research science, and comics. We were featured on UK Channel 4 TV's "50 Funniest Moments of the Year" and listed as a Timeout Chicago Critics' Pick.

"Absolutely electric!" - Third Coast Review

"Performances that channel favorite characters from movies and video games." - Chicago Tribune

"Never seen a Wookiee bellydance? This can be remedied." - MSN
