Story of One, Story of Many / Amina Khayyam Dance Company

What happens when everything about you gets tarnished with a single brush and your story becomes one of many…

Following Amina Khayyam Dance Company’s critically-acclaimed production ONE, this new work uses high energy Kathak featuring the cyclic phenomenon of south Asian classical arts and philosophy to tell the experiences of migrants maligned with generalisation and stereotype.

Three dancers weave individual stories accompanied by live music featuring tabla and cello.

Friday 1 March 8pm / Book Tickets

LORE / James Wilton Dance

Award-winning dance company James Wilton Dance present a folklore-inspired journey into a pagan world of gods, demons and humans, all embodied through otherworldly athleticism.

The specially-composed soundtrack by Michal Wojtas, who draws influence from Viking, Celtic and Slavic folk music, is like listening to the tales our ancestors told while sat in a clearing in the woods, and hearing the ancient stories that bind humanity together.

Saturday 2 March 8pm / Book Tickets

Skydiver / Xenia Aidonopoulou

Greek dance artist, dramaturg and director Xenia Aidonopoulou makes visually compelling dance-theatre works filled with wonder and imagination that will captivate even the youngest audience members. For ages 3-5
