-“This dance company is unlike anything you’ve seen before”
(Shani Tamari, Israel Hayom).
Shakti is a new creation of Erica Rintovich and the movement project.
A powerful feminine creative force in a creation that combines physical theatre, dance, art and circus.
The word Shakti is taken from Sanskrit and it is the initiative force of the spirit and represents the dynamic forces that flow in our universe.
Shakti’s energy motivates us to take action. It gives us the courage to create and manifest.
Desire is an active part within it. It’s a strong force in life that moves us forward. It is the source for all change and development.
Shakti resides within each and everyone of us.
All we need to do is reconnect with her .
This creation is inspired by the philosophy, art and traditions of the Hindu culture.
