Against all odds and right at the end of the year, 2020 took me to the middle of the Indian Ocean to entertain guests at the stunning Niyama Private Islands Resort during their New Years Eve celebrations.
Blessed by this opportunity at such difficult times, I celebrate all my fellow performers and friends in the arts and event production. You are the engine that makes the Earth ship sail and tonight I dance for you.
Matthias led the circle into a beautiful meditative state, whilst Guy provided the soundtrack to accompany the journey within. Finally when everyone opened their eyes again, here I was channeling Shakti ❤
Infinite love and gratitude to the power house that is The Gardens of Babylon team for providing us with a safe and beautiful playground to dance our hearts free and connect at such difficult times.
A celebration of the intoxicating, wild feminine and the divine, creative power of Shakti.
‘Kali’ is a highly-skilled, sophisticated and sassy performance that combines dance and hula hooping with the latest, cutting-edge LED technology. Custom illuminating colours, patterns and graphics are delivered on stage in conjunction with seamless movements and choreography, to create an unforgettable, multi-dimensional visual experience. Drawing inspiration from Hindu mythology and African music, Silvia channels the Tantric Goddess of love and destruction in a fast-paced, psychedelic act that aims at inspiring women to embrace their inner wilderness and creative power.

I spent the last 3 months training and collaborating with some incredibly talented people in Ko Pha Ngan – Thailand. This was a particularly inspiring and fruitful journey and below are a few images to witness how Thailand truly is a place for artists and nature to meet.
And below is a short clip from my performance at the inaugural ‘Colours of Love’ festival on Why Nam beach. Thank you to Wild Sirenda for calling us into a higher vibration of love and cosmic connection.
When I grow up, I want to be a wild child with layers on
Embrace of the Serpent
“She taught him that one cannot take pleasure without giving pleasure, and that every gesture, every caress, every touch, every glance, every last bit of the body has its secret, which brings happiness to the person who knows how to wake it.”
Like an ever spinning wheel, life sets us a challenge when we least expect it, to test our courage and willingness to change…
‘Hoops In Motion’ is a wonderfully exciting journey, a piece of circus and visual arts, originally commissioned by John Bishop and further developed by Cirque Bijou and with support from the National Centre for Circus Arts.
