Saturday (and Sunday) Samadhi Dance Company performances

Dearest all coming for the festival starting in just about 1 week :); on Saturday the 30th January everyone not in the Kirtan Hall (meaning most of you) will have the great opportunity to go and see „Japa“ which is part of the new show called ‚Patita Pavana‘ from the brilliant Samadhi Dance Company. They will perform this brand new piece as a tribute to Srila Prabhupada in honour of the world wide ISKCON 50th Anniversary celebrations. The show is to take place somewhere around 16:00 in the Museum Of Sacred Arts which will be opening a brand new gallery dedicated to Srila Prabhupada as well. More info about this will be available upon arrival during the festival.

Due to the fact the room can contain a maximum of 80–100 at a time there will most likely be a second representation on the Sunday.
