Fall Season 2016

A spectacular evening at the BOZAR

On Tuesday Sept 27 Samadhi had the honor to perform several scenes of ‘Atma’ feat. Ananda Monet during the prestigious celebration of ISKCON’s 50th anniversary for members of the European Parliament at the beautiful BOZAR theatre in Brussels, Belgium. The evening was presented by the beloved Kripamoya Das (UK) and included live performances of rising star Jahnavi Harrison, the Bhaktivedanta Players and several memorable speeches by recognized members of the EU and ISKCON. This resulted in a spectacular and memorable evening where the audience ended up dancing and singing along with the joyful kirtan of Jahnavi Harrison and the fabulous supporting musicians of Radhadesh.
The entire experience left the dancers of the company enchanted and smiling for days, for it was such a delight to perform with these amazingly inspiring artists and for such a graceful and appreciative audience, words come short to describe these type of experiences! Hereby we would also like to give a heartfelt thanks to MOSA, Martin Gurvich/Mahaprabhu Das, Kumari Kunti, Visvambhar, Devaki and all those who made this beautiful event happen and for allowing us to be a part of it!

Samadhi's 10-year anniversary 'Between Worlds'

Coming back to reality the dancers return to the studio ready to reach new physical and artistic heights for the coming seasons as next year marks the 10 years anniversary of Samadhi Dance Company, wauw! Who would have thought that a small, independent and distinctive company would make it through all these years of significant changes and cuts, global and national ups and lows and the intense and constant changes that characterize the fleeting pace of the dance world? Well, we sure didn’t! Needless to say we are more than proud and beyond grateful to see us come this far and of course this asks for a major celebration!
And what better way to celebrate than by dancing our hearts out for our beloved and loyal audience, the ones who keep us going time and time again!
