  3. Raks Geek: A Sci-Fi + Fantasy Speakeasy

"Set phasers to stunning." - The Daily Mail (UK)

Experience nerd delight with cosplay and wonder in an intimate speakeasy - we pay tribute to fandoms from Star Wars to Marvel, Doctor Who to Silent Hill with circus artists, fusion bellydancers, object manipulators, and more who have performed around the world. These shows often sell out!


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

Voted "Best Dance Troupe" (runner up) by the Chicago Reader, Raks Geek is the premiere cosplay performance company by geeks for geeks - they broke the internet's collective brain with a viral video of a Wookiee bellydancing to a four-piece Klingon band. Raks Geek is based in Chicago, but they've made waves nationally and internationally on MSN, The Daily Mail, and WGN-TV through their commitment to blend a high degree of artistic and technical mastery with fun, creativity, and themes from nerd culture.

"Absolutely electric from the moment they took the stage." - Third Coast Review

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