ANIKAI Dance/Wendy Jehlen: He Who Burns

About This Show

He Who Burns is an exploration through dance, text and music of the figure of Iblis, Satan, as understood in some Sufi traditions. Through this lens, the dance-theater piece explores the nature of humanity’s relationship with the divine, the eternal quest for unity, and the illusion of duality in the human experience. Staged as a trio, He Who Burns takes us on a journey from the time before time, through the suffering of Iblis in his separation from his Beloved, and his quest for the same, through to his ecstatic annihilation.
