Mystic India – The World Tour



Concert Series, Ordway Concert Hall

Created by Director Amit Shah and featuring the AATMA Performing Arts dance company, Mystic India: The World Tour is an internationally-acclaimed Bollywood dance spectacular based on the concept of ancient India’s transition into modern India. The colorful costumes and elaborate sets have been custom designed by Amit Shah and handmade in India’s film capital by a team of 40 designers and workers over the course of four years. The team of diverse, impeccably trained dancers from the AATMA Performing Arts dance company combines authentic Indian and modern techniques bringing the streets Mumbai and New York into perfect harmony.

Over half a million people have seen Mystic India: The World Tour since its conception in 2011 through its successful tours in South Africa, Switzerland, Canada, Bahrain, China, and various cities in the United States. The company has opened for Carrie Underwood in Las Vegas, and performed for executives of many Fortune 500 companies, as well as in major casinos, amusement parks, and performing arts centers. It is the first internationally-touring Indian dance production headed by the USA- based dance company, and the first touring Indian production that carries such a diverse case of artists. City and Shore Magazine voted it “The Must-See Show of the Season.”

Audiences of Mystic India: The World Tour can expect an explosion of colors and energy as they travel on a celebratory journey through Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Punjab and Gujarat, and even through the progression of Bollywood films via a stunning visual display that fuses dance, theater, and spectacular special effects.
