Dancers activate the space by negotiating snakes and ladders — which represent the heights of ecstasy and depths of longing in Hindu and Sufi thought — to connect the human with the transcendent and reveal mysteries within the self, choreographed by Aparna Ramaswamy and Ranee Ramaswamy.

Composer Amir ElSaffar leads a musical ensemble with a distinct alchemy of Iraqi, jazz, and Carnatic instruments. Co-commissioned by The Arts Center.

This event is open to the public. Advance registration is required, please visit The NYUAD Arts Center website for more ticket information.
