I EXIST – to Rajasthan

A staged concert by Marc Sinan Sinan Company with musicians, artists, ensembles and institutions from the Roma community, Europe and India.

In “I EXIST – to Rajasthan”, a cast of musicians, artists and ensembles from Europe and India team up to tell the story of a trip to the mythical origins of a nation. Ancient tales chronicle the roots of the Roma from Rajasthan. For the avant-garde musician Iva Bittová and the artist duo Damian & Delaine Le Bas, this encounter with the reputed birthplace of the Roma also meant coming face-to-face with a part of their heritage. And this journey into the unknown turns into a journey to the roots of their own existence.
