Jasmine Semjase

Jasmine Semjase

Jasmine Semjase is a fusion belly dancer and ritual artist with an incantatory quality.
Her style is saucy and serpentine… inspired by her west coast BD roots, contemporary movements, hip hop elements, and visionary theater productions.
Her flows are rich in archetypal play that weave mystica and raw, wild feminine power into an primordial portal where light and darkness come together in ethereal beauty.
As the performance artist of DISSØLV, Jasmine invokes a dissølution into the hypnotic dream states of dance music. Spellbound to the sound, she serves as a visual vessel that lifts the veil beyond the sonic realm.. to reveal a world of mystery and magick that comes alive through movement.
Every performance is a poetic transmission, concocting an enchanting experience that is mesmerizing and otherworldly.
