🎭 – Panchajanya, the conch shell used by Lord Krishna in the Mahabharata war, inspires us to apply the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita to our daily battles. We often face emotional conflicts when making decisions, and our choices impact our actions, emotions, and memories. Panchajanya explores these conflicts and how the body responds to self-questioning. This piece is a humble attempt to bring the concept of the conch shell into our daily lives.

The piece has been commissioned by Staatstheater Kassel and danced by the selected Kassel Company’s members.
