CRA’P collaborations 2017

Friday 7 July from 20:30 to 00:00, in the Garden of the Can Mulà Library, Mollet del Vallès

with Michael Gadish, Gisele Cornejo and Ofer Ronen with the music of Hamsa Hamsa

Respirar el Mahabharata (breathing the Mahabharata) is a twelve years long performance in which Michael Gadish commits himself to research the wide Indian epic called Mahabharata and release a new show each year, based on each of the twelve volumes of this work.

What will be shown the 7th in the gardens of Can Mulà library is the show corresponding to the first volume of th e Mahabharata, a telling of the symbolical foundations that will hold this cathedral of misthicology. This first performance of the project was developed in Atelelier Escènic Stoyanova under the direction of María Stoyanova.

Respirar el Mahabharata I is an homage to the art of storytelling. A story teller, an actress and medium, with an oriental music band, will guide the experience. Respirar el Mahabarata is a trip from Mollet to the luminary paths that cross the stars and reach beyond the confines of the galaxy and everything we are able to imagine.






Along his career path Michael Gadish has combined together the study of Hebrew and Sanskrit language with theater, dance and performance dramaturgy. Research on orality and storytelling matched with a passion for sacred stories from India has led him to throw himself almost exclusively in this tradition. He gives lectures about Indian mythology that fuse a didactic attitude with an artistic experience.

Gisele Cornejo is an actress, singer and tarot reader. Gisele Cornejo is a regular member of Respirar el Mahabharata project.

Hamsa Hamsa is and oriental music band based in Barcelona. Ofer Ronen, musician and musicologist specialized in flamenco guitar and oud. Ofer Ronen and Michael Gadish are regular collaborators in different music and storytelling projects.
