LOVE vs LUST

KAMA is the classic story of lust versus love and the battle that the hero character Kurtis faces while discovering himself and dealing with the temptations of the world. It is a reminder that Love wins when it coexists with Lust. The story is told through dance and cirque in a Cabaret-style dinner theatre show.
