Seven years sell-out in Avignon, France.
Dance in its purest form. The eternal classical western music that never ages with time and the beauty and vulnerability of the human body and soul are portrayed in this piece. She is not young. She is a woman with much experience in life and in love. Shakti dances in the nude with an interpretation full of serenity, emotion, passion and beauty to the classical music. One can see the sculpturesque postures reminiscent of the Hindu temples and imagine a goddess descending from the heavens.
The technique and expression of Indian Classical Dance and Yoga give an essence of exotic spirituality which is mysterious and erotic but, above all, has a very human aspect.

Artist and producer
Shakti grew up with the rich cultural heritage of Japan and India. She studied yoga with her father and dance with her mother (the first Japanese woman to introduce Indian dance in Japan). While receiving her MA in Indian Philosophy at Columbia University, New York she also studied modern dance with Martha Graham.
Upon returning to Japan, Shakti developed a unique hybrid form of dance blending Eastern dance traditions with Western jazz & contemporary dance resulting in an erotic, exotic and shocking effect. She has been performing worldwide to great critical acclaim. Her unique mesmerising performances have touched and tantalised audiences everywhere.
