Kala Sangam 24th May 2018
Artists Takeover Scratch Night

Artists Takeover Scratch Night

Saturday 16th September – 7:30pm

This summer Kala Sangam opened its doors to a group of exciting artists to create, play, rehearse and develop new work – we called it our Artists Takeover.

Join us for an evening of new, exciting dance as three of these artists share their work in progress. The evening features a range of styles, including:

  • Cutting-edge digital integrated dance by Lucie Lee – member of Bradford Dance Network, Lucie will use cutting edge digital technology to create both a new contemporary dance piece 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.
  • A Bharatanatyam Jathiswaram solo from Kamala 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.

The evening also features a chance to hear from each of the artists about their experiences creating their work and ask those burning questions that you might have!
