Sangeet Millennium, in collaboration with Art Nomadic and other artists, offers a multidisciplinary, multi-media, multi-linguistic performance installation exploring the notion of a journey through a metaphysical world. Travel through theatrical portals focused on three distinct but related mystical traditions and enacted through live performances of music, movement, and spoken word recitation. All enhanced by an original audio-recorded soundtrack, light installations, and video projections. Through the language of folktales and songs, experience a narrative of mystical progression through three interconnected metaphysical concepts of South Asia. Enjoy the experience of karmic cycles along the River of Life, described in “bhakti” (popular devotional) Hinduism; the Sufi (mystical Islamic) narrative of the human soul’s search for union with the divine; and “Bardo,” the experience of the human soul during the transition between death and rebirth, as described in the Tibetan Book of the Dead.
