Introducing Olivia Buckland

 INTRODUCING ANNABELLE BUCK

 

 

 New Administration & Marketing Assistant for Sonia Sabri Company

A very warm welcome to Annabelle, who has recently taken on this new role within the company.  I had a lovely chat with Annabelle about her past ventures and her thoughts on joining the SSCo team and this is what she had to say..................

"I trained in Drama, Applied Theatre and Education where I found great gratification in the power of performance practice research. I thus believe that the arts has strong abilities to self-revelate it's audience. I have been working internationally as an arts practitioner, director and all-round volumiser of anything creative and transforming. It's very exciting and empowering to now be adding volume to such real art in the heart of Birmingham. You know you’re in the right place when you are completely and utterly mesmerised by the sounds and the movements of the work that you are representing. Sonia truly lives for kathak and to help share her work and those very many stories is a heart-felt pleasure. Sonia Sabri Company is full of energy, positivity and good nature, from both the people in the company and the practice itself. I’m very happy to be a part of it."

SSCo are thrilled to have Annabelle as part of their team and we look foward to many exciting projects in the future where we can create, imagine and energise the world around us!

LABYRINTH IS COMING TO LEICESTER!

Sonia Sabri Company are thrilled to be bringing Labyrinth to Leicester this month as part of An Indian Summer


Labyrinth is a spiritually charging piece that invites you into the dialogue between Sonia Sabri Ash Mukherjee, as they perform the contrasting styles of kathak and bharatanatyam.


Live music creates an overwhelming beautiful atmosphere, captivating the audience into the astonishing visuals of Labyrinth.  Originally inspired by Woody Allen's play Death Knocks (1968), Sonia and Ash perform with two different languages, entering a single dialogue that explores the opposites of darkness & lightness/negative & positive. 

A duet & two solo's, the experience of Labyrinth will promise to energise. 

Get your tickets now to ensure you don't miss out on this very powerful performance. See you there!
