About this show

Award winning Aakash Odedra Company pushes the boundaries of narrative style dance using a movement vocabulary which blends contemporary dance, Kathak and Bharat Natyam.

Enter the world of Samsara and journey through the vast histories, philosophies and cultures of China and India. Created and performed by Curve Associate Artist Aakash Odedra (UK/India) and Hu Shenyuan (China), Samsara merges mythological storytelling with personal anecdotes. The piece is inspired by the 16th century classic Chinese novel Journey to the West which depicts the epic journey of a monk's travels through China and India in search of original Buddhist scripture. Samsara is a touching story of cultural exchange, drawing upon ballet, Chinese folk, kathak and contemporary dance.
