Premiere March 1, 2025 - Amsterdam

Shailesh Bahoran

Building on his previous works, such as SHAKTI and AGHORI, in which Indian philosophy of life and Hindustani culture form the starting points, Bahoran searches for the universality of the mystical in MYSTIC. How can something bring about the same experience in different cultures, in different times, in different places, and for all kinds of different people?
With a background in hip-hop culture, Bahoran goes on an adventure in collaboration with ICK Dans Amsterdam and the ICK ensemble dancers with a classical/contemporary background. Cross-pollination is also sought in the music and spiritual aspects of the culture of the Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra. Six musicians play live during the performance.
