An intimate dance experience that unites the stillness of Zen meditation with the rapturous motion of Sufi dervishes. Evoking a cultural landscape that extends from Persia to Japan, Sufi:Zen exists in a world of contrasts -- of ice and fire, entropy and energy, introspection and divine omniscience.
Sufi:Zen is choreographed by Gauri Sharma Tripathi with the support of Jonathan Lunn and Mavin Khoo. It merges multiple dance styles, including kathak, contemporary and ballet. Set to a score by Shrikanth Sriram, this performance reflects Akademi's longstanding reputation for presenting modern perspectives on traditional South Asian dance forms in unusual and distinct spaces.
Sufi:Zen Commissioned by Without Walls and Lakes Alive supported by Lanternhouse and Southbank Centre.
