Amina Khayyam Dance
Sensitised by the global refugee issue, Amina Khayyam returns to the fundamental principle of Indian philosophy and classical arts of the cyclic phenomenon, where there is no beginning nor an end, to propose that we are all but refugees of time undermining how we become territorial of our habitat.
Incorporating Nritta (pure dance) and Nritya (expression of narrative), the kathak takes you on a memorable journey, through the use of costume, movement, space and music to capture the first beat of time and nest it until it becomes the ‘one’ again.
Features live music – sarangi, cello, tabla and vocals.
Debasish Mukherjee (tabla), Lucy Rahman (vocals), Alastair Morgan (Cello)
