Samsara - Aakash Odedra at Northern Stage

A spellbinding piece
Fri 14 Oct 2022 7:00pm
Running time: 60mins
Join Northern Stage for Samsara.

Aakash Odedra Company and Bagri Foundation invite you to enter the world of Samsara. Inspired by the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West, Samsara is a spellbinding piece that traces the steps we take, both forward and backward, in search of our higher selves.

Two extraordinary dancers Aakash Odedra (UK/India) and Hu Shenyuan (China) use their disciplines of Kathak, Chinese folk, ballet and contemporary dance to explore the Buddhist notion of samsara – the wheel of life, birth, existence and re-birth. This compelling journey of self-development, fear and love traces a path across lands and through time, exploring the idea that if we let attachments go and allow light in, we might find a place of truth and peace.

Drawing on thinking and imagery at the heart of Buddhist philosophy, Samsara’s mythological storytelling merges with personal experience from two globally opposite perspectives in a seductive, astonishing journey of twin movement.
