‘ABHAY’ is a contemporary crossover dance performance created for the Krishna Spectacular show choreographed by Vraja Sundari in collaboration with Samadhi’s team of exquisite dancers. Krishna Spectacular celebrates the Golden Anniversary of spiritual heritage brought by the legendary author and spiritual leader A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada who changed the world by bringing the Vedic culture to the West during the roaring 60’s.
For this momentous occasion Samadhi’s founder Vraja Sundari was requested to create a dance performance giving visual and emotional expression to A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada’s dramatic journey from India to the United States, resulting in the dance creation ‘ABHAY’. The title ‘ABHAY‘ is A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada’s first name which means ‘fearless’ in Sanskrit and gives a perfect description of this incredible personality.
The costumes are created by Russian artist Asya Solov’eva in collaboration with the multitalented Natalia Fedotova, Samadhi’s Russian partner. The ‘ABHAY’ soundtrack includes tracks from Faroese, Dwarakadisa Das, Suplington, Ólafur Arnalds and Joep Beving with narrations by George Harrison, Tamal Krishna Goswami, HG Rukmini Devi, HG Syamasundar, HG Malati devi dasi and A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada himself.
