Performance Live in Transition. A creative Journey into Dance and Music

The project “Life in transition” is shown as a very realistic emotional process. Life means contradictions of positive and negative emotions. Happiness gives joy, destruction breaks us, brings frustration and helplessness is combined with sadness. But the universal truth could be: time never stops for anyone, life always goes on. And so amidst all odds, humanity finds its way of coping up, finding peace, spiritual calmness and hope in life. That project tries to portray this very aspect of human reality.

The fusion of three extraordinary women in performance coming from different artistic realms such as Odissi Dance, Jazz and Percussion, is meant as an artistic experiment for research and development of the chosen theme “Life in transition”.
