Great reviews for Rudra at York Minster last weekend!






 
' Rudra took us on a mesmerizing journey that makes one wish the art of performance weren’t so ephemeral. One is glad to know that such a high-quality production with an incredibly talented team will be touring many sites around Yorkshire in the Spring of 2014'   Seetal Kaur Gahir

Rudra opens this weekend! An epic tale choreographed by Sonia Sabri





Emotive Flight
RUDRA reverberates through the universe... a powerful force in the shape of Shiva that destroys evil and restores balance, this performance echoes the cycle of peace, disturbance, love and lament.

Manasamitra resurrects ancient Indian mythology with an exciting fusion of contemporary music and dance. Choreographer Sonia Sabri, working in contemporary kathak brings together four regional dancers with contemporary and Indian dance backgrounds to create RUDRA against an original musical score performed live. RUDRA will offer audiences a new experience of Indian arts.
