India Week continues as Aakash Odedra Company presents the U.S. premiere of Samsara (inspired by the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West), a dance piece that traces the steps we take, both forward and backward, in search of our higher selves.

Drawing from the heart of Buddhist philosophy, Samsara explores some of the 81 obstacles and 6 states of mind that can hold us back. Epic mythological storytelling merges with personal experience and anecdotes from two globally opposite perspectives, in a highly visual landscape.

Join us for a remarkable offering from a dance company that strives to create a society that is happier and healthier through dance. For more information and to book tickets, visit https://www.lincolncenter.org/series/summer-for-the-city/samsara-485.

“In this heady world of symbolism, under the weight of history and identity, Odedra and Hu are electric.”
— The Guardian


“A real and deep beauty permeates this new duet.”
— The Times
