Promising a ‘compelling journey of self-development, strength, fear and love,’ Samsara unites Chinese folk dancing, kathak, ballet and contemporary dance for a stunning one-off performance at The Lowry on Sun 9 Oct, having garnered critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival.

Created by international artists Aakash Odedra (India/UK), a British prodigy set to become the only dancer to have performed across all three Lowry theatre spaces, and 2019 Dance Smash winner Hu Shenyuan (China), the immersive, dynamic show draws on the ancient monastic pilgrimage between China and India, which itself inspired the classic Chinese tale, Journey to the West. Set to a live, mesmerising soundtrack composed and sang by Nicki Wells (New Zealand), Samsara is a singularly global production which ‘traces a path across lands and through time’ in a spiritual search for truth and peace, by letting go of attachments in order to accept love.

Described as ‘ingenious’ and ‘electric’ in the Guardian’s glowing review, Samsara runs for one night only with tickets on sale for £18.
