A high-energy two-hand dance piece exploring a same-sex relationship from a South Asian feminist perspective. The performance combines Kathak’s spectacle and intensity with the physicality of contemporary dance and features a live music score performed by internationally acclaimed musicians.
Man meets Man… discovering a state of happiness he has never known before; but he has a wife and family at home.
A short dance piece choreographed by AMINA KHAYYAM, thematic from a south Asian feminist perspective, developed because of AKDC’s programme of workshops
with women’s community groups. The women shared their real-life experiences of a marriage where their partner could not express his sexuality for fear of bringing shame to the family. This experience was developed with two LGBTQ+ performers from their imagining his perspective.
You&Me is a high energetic piece bringing the spectacle and intensity of Kathak with the physicality of contemporary dance with a live music score performed by internationally acclaimed musicians – Debasish Mukherjee (tabla), Jonathan Mayer (Sitar), Iain McHugh (cello).
