Contemporary music and dance performance: It is a confluence of two cultures through music and dance. The musical compositions are a blend of the Oriental and the West. Similarly the dance is a coming together of different cultures.

She has a theatre and dance company in France and manages the design of stage and lighting along with Sylvain Dufour.

The show starts in darkness paying homage to The Gurus with Sanskrit Mantra Chants bleeding into “Angels Dust”. It begins before dawn and ends at sunset traversing through different emotions. The performance will be backed by sounds of nature and short French poems. The guiding thread of the performance is the relationship of Nature to its own nature, and the search for peace.
