Shakti unleashes the hidden erotic meaning from the fairy tale.
The dance shows off Shakti’s simultaneously primitive and sophisticated theatrical sensibility. The piece itself won’t be for all tastes, but some of the images – including the climactic sight of this gorgeous woman standing shamelessly defiantly certainly sticks in the mind.

Through silent performance, Shakti rewrites this classic tale in such a way that it challenges the perception of the existence of good without evil, life without death and light without darkness. Immersing herself in the character she portrays, Shakti examines the duality of the beauty and the beast within us all.
