      Shakti

    • language no problem
  • We are imbalanced. As the world stops turning, it picks up more and more speed. There seems to be a global disparity between men and women, black and white, mankind and nature. We find ourselves caught between two opposites, painfully aware we are as one. How do we bridge the gap?
    In his latest work, choreographer Shailesh Bahoran explores the qualities of the feminine energy Shakti, which in the Indian philosophy stands for everything that moves. What is the essence of the all propelling life force? And what tension arises between Shakti and its opposite Shiva, the masculine energy that represents the silent thought?

    In a still whirlwind, four phenomenal dancers hurtle across time and space to discover what moves us. Surrounded by the live sound of two classical Indian string instruments, the tanpura and the sarod, they whirl from the center of the universe to the core of their being. In search of balance, or at least understanding.

    SHAKTI is the second performance by Illusionary Rockaz Company (IRC), the new company around the talented choreographer/dancer Shailesh Bahoran. In a short time Bahoran managed to make a name for himself with high-profile productions such as Lalla Rookh, Ignite, Aghori. His latest work REDO was awarded the prize from the Nederlandse Dansdagen and the ‘Zwaan’ for Most Impressive Dance Performance for dancer Redouan Ait Chitt.

    SHAKTI will premiere on September 29 in Korzo Theater The Hague. After that, this performance can be seen throughout the Netherlands from October to January. Please note: due to the current Corona measures, the room capacity is limited.
