HERE and NOW (Now booking)
“..the distinction between the past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” – Albert Einstein
Inspired by one of her favorite childhood myths: Narada and the Story of Maya, Mythili explores her complex relationship with time, as a mother, artist, and human being. The starting point of this exploration is the “illusory” nature of time as elucidated in Eastern Philosophy and Myth.
HERE and NOW asks questions about perception, relativity, and existence.
Nominated by acclaimed dancer/choreographer Akram Khan as “choreographer of the future,” Mythili has been commissioned to create this piece by UK-based Dance Umbrella for the Four by Four Commissions. It premieres at the Dance Umbrella festival 2019 at Fairfield Croydon on October 19, 2019.
