Luciterra is a

Vancouver-based fusion bellydance

company that consists of four women:

Amber, Gillian, Laura, and Naomi Joy.                         

                                                                                                                                                        

                                                                                                                                                      

Hard-hitting and dynamic, this powerful

quartet works their magic at music events,

major festivals, and underground parties

across the West Coast and beyond. At home

in Vancouver, you can catch them on the last

Tuesday of every month at their signature,

unique-each-time, full length show,

The Decadent Eccentric, in collaboration with

host and circus artist Chris Murdoch. For
