Deviating & pointing straight too, or are they angled to the left so youre still nice & spiral-3D.br/Sorry to ask for the detail. We just wondered what others do.br/br/Does anyone know of any resources I can go to read / learn more on Cafe Style. Id really appreciate it. br/br/The concept sounds pretty simple (differing performance angle and nicking leadership), I just wondered if theres anything else to include when we share this with our troupe?br/br/Ive come across some mentionings in these two threads:br/a href=http://tribalbellydance.tribe.net/m/thread/9459dadd-3726-4fde-84a4-d4d9d28caa74 title=tribalbellydance.tribe.net/m/th...caa74tribalbellydance.tribe.net/m/th...caa74/abr/br/a href=http://ats.tribe.net/thread/b7d02974-46be-48eb-a93b-1461ea904113 title=ats.tribe.net/thread/b7d0...1461ea904113ats.tribe.net/thread/b7d0...1461ea904113/abr/br/Ta v much,br/Nix
Originally posted by Sandi on tribe.net.Well, cafe style for us has a 2-sided audience (lets say theyre front & back). The setup is the same as a diagonal, only our orientation is so that it is facing one side or the other, not directly at the audience. And there are two lead possibilities. Leading from one end and then another lead can take it the other direction if a pivot or a 1/2 turn happens (thats not a sequence like Ghawazee or Single Bump). So the audience would get a side view. You would still have a performance angle, not flat forward. br/br/A diagonal has only one front and that is towards the audience in proscenium. Still in performance angle.br/br/Hope that makes sense.
