In Devadasi, Reena takes you on her journey into a Russian Tantric Cult, where she falls in love with a “spiritual master,” who she makes her God. By helping Reena awaken to an ancient remembrance of herself as a Devadasi, an Indian Temple Priestess, what is at first an empowering relationship soon turns into one of psychological and spiritual manipulation. Direct interventions by the Goddess Kali, wake Reena up to face the pain of her reality and her own self-hate. She teaches Reena to dance with her own darkness and reclaim the power and sacredness of her body and sexuality.
Through 8 different characters, movement and dance, Reena takes you on an intimate, humorous and mystical journey into the underworld.
