“If you've ever wanted to visit India, this show is your direct flight there”
Amit Shah, an internationally renowned choreographer and production visionary, is known for combining authentic Indian dance with modern western dance styles through his award-winning performing arts troupe, AATMA Performing Arts.
Accompanied by the powerful rhythms of masterful musicians, a versatile troupe of dancers and acrobats takes audiences on a kaleidoscopic journey through 100 years of history.
Performances chart India's transition from the sedate grandeur of an ancient civilization and its fearless leaders to the small villages of rural India and their deeply-rooted cultural celebrations and finally to the fast-paced streets of Mumbai and Bollywood pop culture.
Like the country it celebrates, Mystic India is a meeting of east and west, as performers present an innovative fusion of jazz, hip-hop, and contemporary dance with Kathak, Bharatanatyam, and Indian folk dances.
Also on display are cirque aerial acts and Mallakhamb, an ancient Indian sport where a gymnast poses and performs stunts on a vertical pole. All of this is set against a stunning backdrop of elaborate sets that only the artists of Bollywood could create.
