Akademi South Asian Dance UK and Red Earth
Presented in association with Greenwich Dance

The elemental landscape of Greenwich Park provides the setting for this ritualistic fusion of Asian dance and environmental art. In a timeless setting, the intensity of Sufi mysticism encounters the stillness of the Zen monks, framed by art installations created from locally sourced natural materials and fire effects. Sufi:Zen will transform a familiar wooded glade into a sacred grove, connecting audiences with global cultures in an experience which promises to both enlighten and inspire.

Please note Sufi:Zen contains fire and smoke effects

Part of Big Dance 2010
Commissioned by Without Walls and Lakes Alive
Red Earth installations commissioned by GDIF
