samsara (asia topa)
Samsara (Asia TOPA)
Created and performed by international dance artists Aakash Odedra (UK/India) and Hu Shenyuan (China), Samsara merges mythological storytelling with personal experience.

Described by The Guardian as “a beautiful performer”, Odedra has attracted global attention for both his virtuoso Kathak performances and his contemporary choreography. One of the most outstanding dancers of his generation in China, Shenyuan was the standout performer in Yang Liping’s Under Siege (Melbourne Festival 2017).

Inspired by the historical events recounted in the 16th century Chinese classic Journey to the West, Samsara is an unprecedented expression of cultural exchange through the language of dance, drawing upon the diverse disciplines of ballet, contemporary dance, Chinese folk dance and the classical Indian dance form Kathak.

Featuring the live music of Nicki Wells, immerse yourself in the energy and skill of these two extraordinary soloists, in this epic world premiere.
