Amina Khayyam Dance Company


Venue: South Street (Directions)

Wed 23 May, 19:30


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), Amina’s kathak takes you on a memorable and intimate 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.

Acccompanied by an ensemble of highly reputable musicians, Debasish Mukherjee (tabla), Lucy Rahman (vocals), Alastair Morgan (Cello).
