ARE  YOU READY TO BE BRAVE AND COME AND WALK ON THE WILD SIDE?

 

This is Shakti's signature piece, her debut into the London dance scene in 1998 at the Riverside Studios.

She shocked the critics and audience and thus was branded a 'one of a kind not to be missed.'

 

An unbridled force of raw energy and quivering flesh Shakti took London by storm and played to a sold out house for 2 weeks. 

She also got the name "Queen of the Fringe" at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. 

 

This piece explores the inner sexuality of a woman and reveals her ascent to liberation and her descent into madness going from self-love to self-destruction from virgin to vixen, creation to destruction, exotica to unrelenting erotica. 

It a a journey of a woman in search of her identity. It is the realization of one who has become unabashedly assured and in control of her own sexuality.

This piece is an exultation of women and life.        Beauty and the beast unleashed. . .
