Ansuman Biswas has an international practice ranging across music, film, live art, installation, architecture, dance, writing and theatre. Growing from his Hindu family traditions he has established a unique personal practice incorporating meditation, music, and improvisation into an integrated way of embodiment and compassion. His eclectic background includes living with wandering minstrels in India, touring with Björk, being employed as an ornamental hermit in the English countryside, travelling with shamans in the Gobi Desert, being sealed in a box for ten days with no food or light, making a musical in a maximum security prison, living for a week with absolutely nothing but what spectators chose to give him, being locked in a Gothic Tower alone for forty days and nights, singing for 24 hours non-stop, and even flying on a real magic carpet, to name but a few.
