Day 1: Krishna Spectacular at the Apollo

SUNDAY 24TH NOVEMBER

A signature event in celebration of 50 years of Hare Krishna culture in the UK. This is a grand international production about Bhaktivedanta Swami’s journey, the Hare Krishna’s London Story and the Bhagavad Gita’s glory!

It will be an artistic expression of timeless wisdom, beautiful culture, and philosophy of bhakti yoga as brought to the west by Bhaktivedanta Swami. It will be a multimedia, theatrical production with Indian classical and contemporary dance and music, acrobatics, and a medley of live music and song, against the backdrop of spoken word, spectacular visual and lighting effects, and immersive 3D visual mapping.

We want to bring something that noone has ever seen before. This is a onetime only production with an amazing team of collaborators including Natya Nectar Dance Company, Samadhi Dance Company, Bali Rico from The Mayapuris, Jahnavi Harrison, Jayadeva’s Mantra Choir, Kal Key, and Sri Kala, who have all come together for this ground-breaking vision.

Bhaktivedanta Swami’s Journey
Bhaktivedanta Swami’s birth name, Abhay Charan, means one who is fearless at the lotus feet of the Lord. We present his mood of fearlessness, how that mood is at the centre of the pioneering spirit that every generation can imbibe. This will include a classical and contemporary dance, musical and spoken word medley, brought to life by Samadhi Dance Company from the Netherlands.

The Hare Krishna’s London Story
A Legacy Begins with the Hare Krishna’s London Story. Capturing moving memories through drama, vintage photography and videography, words from ISKCON UK pioneers, Gurudas dasa, Shyamasundar dasa and Malati devi dasi who are flying in specially from the USA, and soulstirring songs performed by Grammynominated Jahnavi Harrison. The finale will be Jayadeva’s Mantra Choir and a 3,000+ audience singing the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra together.

The Bhagavad Gita’s Glory
Brought to life through a beautifully sculpted, creative, cultural yet contemporary presentation of a soul’s journey to this world, the joys and sorrows he experiences, and the search for genuine timeless wisdom through modern relevance. Culminating in finding the jewel of bhakti yoga, as brought to the west by Bhaktivedanta Swami. We are bringing something that has never been seen before, a world debut of enchanting, theatrical dance and music deeply rooted in the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita As It Is.
