Shakti - the Indo-Japanese dancer-choreographer internationally famed for her unique exotic blend
of Oriental and Occidental genres, returns to
Edinburgh for the 12th year with her unique
interpretation of Beauty & the Beast, with no
concessions to Walk Disney!
Episodes of contrasting mood,
heightened by Steven and Arban Severin's score,
fearlessly explore the depths of the myth in her
odyssey of self discovery.

Called from darkness in neo-punk,
she journeys to an empty palace where her
relentlessly thoughtful movement break the chains of necessity to enter the polarities of the psyche.
