Aakash Odedra Company and Bagri Foundation invite you to enter the world of Samsara. Journey through the vast cultures of China and India in this physical and spiritual performance. Created and performed by international dance artists Aakash Odedra (UK/India) and Hu Shenyuan (China); they draw upon the diverse disciplines of ballet, Chinese folk, kathak and contemporary dance. Samsara is inspired by the journeys of the many monks believed to have attempted the long pilgrimage between China and India, that led to the classic 16th Century Chinese story Journey to The West. This compelling journey of self-development, strength, fear and love finds new meaning in modern times. Samsara traces a path across lands and through time, exploring the idea that if we let attachments go and allow love or light in, we might find a place of truth and peace. Immerse yourself in the energy and skill of these two extraordinary dancers, and the live music of composer and singer Nicki Wells (UK/Switzerland) in this epic journey of discovery.
