Using various forms of classical Indian dance, this outdoor promenade performance attracts audiences into an ascension of the fifth sphere of Dante’s circles of heaven described in the epic poem the Divine Comedy.

Both intimate and powerful, this piece will draw parallels between Mars, as the ruler of the warriors of faith with Mangala and its Vedic astrological interpretation.

This piece forms a part of a large scale outdoor secret garden production by Akademi.

Choreographed by Manuela Benini, produced and commissioned by Akademi.
