A magical landscape of myth, ritual, and folklore await in Shepsu Aakhu’s Kosi Dasa. “Stories are passed from mouth to mouth, with the supple caress of secret words wrapped inside a full kiss”. No Eyes and Diata are a young couple, flirting with love as they await their passage into adulthood. Their lives are changed forever as each must accept sacrifice in the name of community, family, and spiritual beliefs. Told using elements of traditional African storytelling, African and Indian Dance, Brazillian and Asian combat styles, and live musical accompaniment, Dasa examines the beliefs which bind one spirit to another, individuals to community, and community to it’s divine aspects.
