Ankusha and Other Mysteries

Kamala Devam Company

Thursday 29 November – 7.30pm

Following her successful performance as part of Kala Sangam’s Artists Takeover in 2017, Kamala Devam returns to Bradford with her company to present an evening of world-class dance, film and theatre.

The company’s first UK tour, Ankusha and Other Mysteries presents their signature contemporary dance pieces Ankusha and Babushka vs. Renaissance Man, alongside a new classical Bharatanatyam solo Jati-Swari-Leela and a showing of the acclaimed dance film The Art of Defining Me.

With three distinctive solos, an athletic trio and a multi award-winning dance film, this programme seeks answers to unanswerable questions: Does fate or free will have a greater hand in shaping the course of our lives? How do we define ourselves without limiting our potential?

Taking inspiration from Devam’s lifetime of experience in contemporary dance and Bharatanatyam, and the explosive qualities of popping and acrobatics, this evening is for dance lovers and novices alike.

‘In a word, exhilarating’
