Setsucon Starts Its "Final Fantasy" with Antipode
Dec 22, 2017
Antipode is an eccentric dance group that has combined their love of otaku/nerd culture with their love of belly dancing to create a unique form of dance known as geek belly dancing. Antipode performs throughout the year at numerous conventions. They were founded in 2006 and have performed all along the East Coast and even in the United Kingdom.
The group is currently made up of five dancers: co-directors Ayla, the choreographer; and Merika, the costumer; with members Linwe, the fan relations manager, Termariel, the stand elf; and our newest dancer, Kaiya. Though primarily the five, Antipode has had multiple guest dancers grace their shows.
Fusing the theatrics of acting with a mix of cosplay, pop-culture, and off-beat humor Antipode brings the audience not just dance, but full geek entertainment.
