Saturday 16th September 2017 at 7:30pm
Kala Sangam Arts Centre
Earlier this year Kala Sangam opened its doors to a group of exciting artists to create, play, rehearse and develop new work – they called it their ‘Artists Takeover’.
Askshay Sharma, Lucie Lee and Kamala Devam are to premiere their scratch performances at Kala Sangam Arts Centre, Bradford.
The evening features a range of styles by Lucie Lee, including a cutting-edge digital integrated dance and a 3D sculpture created by capturing visual images that are generated by moving in the space.
A new contemporary dance piece by Akshay Sharma – a new graduate from Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Akshay will be creating a contemporary dance solo which responds to the manual labour demands and low wages of workers in India.
The third instalment of the evening will be a Bharatanatyam Jathiswaram solo from Kemala Devam – a classical Bharata Natyam dancer, Kamala will use Kala Sangam’s space to develop a new jathiswaram solo set to live western and Indian classical music
Kala Sangam is a Bradford-based national organisation for South Asian arts, culture and heritage. It hosts a range of South Asian arts performances, classes and workshops in the arts, in addition to an extensive programme of community work with young people, families and minority groups.
