“As the sun alone illuminates all this universe, so does the living entity, one within the body, illuminate the entire body, by consciousness.” - Bhagavad Gita
Bho, Sanskrit for ‘Hey, you’, speaks to human experiences and relationships within the world and its body. Bho is a spontaneous, intimate encounter in which both dancer and spectator become intentionally drawn into the human experience through the use of language, purposeful music and playful, expressive dancing. The work is inspired by the ancient Bhagavad-Gita, classic tales of Peter Pan (J.M. Barrie) and The Little Prince (Antoine Saint-Exupery). The approach to life and philosophy of the human world interpreted by these legendary classics strongly influences the imagination of the performers.
