The crowd was in full dance mode and on their feet throughout the show. A regular scene at a MOKSHA show are the body painters and tonight the painters interpreted ‘Mammal or Machine’ with their brushes on the bodies of women at the back of the stage throughout the show. It was a dynamic and colorful evening of sights and sounds.
