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 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.

What audiences are saying:

“wonderfully written, orchestrated and a courageously brilliant performance!”

“exquisite, vulnerable, and real”

“electrifying…full of humor, hubris, pathos, love, transformation & triumph!”

“An incredibly profound and stunning one-woman show.”

“An amazing emotional and spiritual adventure.”

“A ritual performance of empowerment.”

Staying relevant is a full-time job, and the last thing you want to be is #Cancelled. A washed up child star. An up-and-coming music producer. An “influencer-by-accident”. What do they have in common? An internet scandal big enough to break them.

WHOAH! LOOKS GOOD! Seriously. #Seriously

From 2x winners of Best of Fringe! Boxing Your Demons: Like if David Lynch became a health/fitness influencer and made an immersive theatre show about cognitive dissonance. Cute workout clothes and chakra crystals recommended. #gratitude
