Imagine a sea, an endless sea with ships crossing it. Each wake, every wave stirred up by a ship tells us something about the past, about that ship, when and where it sailed and in what direction it went. The waves contain information, like a memory.
An endless sky filled with stars.
A universe where everything and everyone is connected.
Welcome to the Akashic field.
How does it feel to be connected to all people and all things?
Rosa Ensemble brings this universe to life in music and light, in sound and vision.
Akasha is a big bang performance. A story of lives, sung and spoken, beyond time and space. All stories, all memories, all relations to others come together in Akasha.
A mesmerizing and seductive kaleidoscope.
