“It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” - Paulo Coelho

Inspired by Paulo Coelho's novel, "The Alchemist", Maktub is a lush and deeply evocative dance performance and an eternal statement transforming power of living in the singular pursuit of one's individual dreams.

Choreographer Vidya Kotamraju blends dance, global music, NAVTAR® (a unique musical instrument), voice and technology to present the gripping tale of the inner human journey juxtaposed against the backdrop of the current refugee crisis. Uplifting and reflective, the performance experiments with multi-medium storytelling to depict the protagonist's journey in discovering one's purpose in life.

In current times of turbulence, Maktub aims to bring hope and healing, through the universal language of dance.

Get ready to feel hopeful and healing on March 9th!
