Sacred Fires​

Inspired by the simple geometry incorporated in an ancient mystical diagram. A quartet of dancers create and reveal the blueprint of unseen, interlocking energies. Using the Odissi form of classical Indian dance, renowned for its geometric and sculptural qualities, the dancers create a kaleidoscope of movement, that weaves shapes, and beat out rhythms that tell their story of creation.
