Samsara at Birmingham Hippodrome
Inspired by the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West, Samsara is a spellbinding piece for two dancers that traces the steps we take, both forward and backward, in search of our higher selves. UK/Indian dancer Aakash Odedra and Chinese dancer Hu Shenyuan draw on the dance traditions of their respective countries to explore the notion of samsara: the wheel of life, of birth, existence and re-birth. 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.
