About This Show

The Other Shore is a new musical connecting East and West, that follows the rebellious Brahmin’s son, Siddhartha, on his journey to liberation as penned by the Nobel Prize-winning author, Hermann Hesse.

Sharing the narrative arc, like a parabolic ballet, there is a simultaneous flow between Hesse’s life in 1919 Germany and the articulated mythic India of his book,Siddhartha. Using the writing of the book as medicine to endure his own crisis, The Other Shore is the deeply personal story of Hesse’s journey of devotion, suffering, loss and transmutation while articulating a myth from which we can draw inspiration.
