Dear friends,

Can your platform announce our show on your weekly newsletter and your monthly calendar for February?

After the great success of the show VAST during our recent national tour in India as well as in the prestigious Bharat Rang Mahotsav festival directed by the National School of Drama, New Delhi and before our upcoming tour in South Africa, members of Surya Performance Lab, Philippe Pelen, Thierry Moucazambo, Gopal Dalami, and Barbara Paschinger are happy to invite you for 2 exceptional performances of VAST at the Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas, Auroville on February 12th and 13th, 2020 at 8 pm.

VAST is a contemporary dance theatre show: It is organic, hypnotic, poetic and universal. VAST evokes the journey of a young man from Nepal who was forced into exile in a big Indian city. Beyond oppression and confinement, he tries to find in his body a path to his Himalaya and Vastness.

·        “The performance was beyond imagination touching our individual from within. The soul was touched and created goosebumps.’’

-Dr. Rohit Singh, Dean Academics, Auro University

·       “It was a spectacular performance. Very touching and extremely poignant. All the very best!”

·       “A superb work on alienation, uprooting, and liberating. With many thanks”.

-Dr. Bertrand DE HARTINGH, Counsellor for Education, Science and Culture, Embassy of France in India
