Artists Takeover Scratch Night

Artists Takeover Scratch Night

Saturday 15 September – 7.30pm

Kala Sangam’s annual Artists Takeover sees us hand over our building every summer to a selection of exciting artists to create, play, rehearse and develop new work. Join us for an evening of dance and poetry as this year’s artists share their work in progress.

Performers include Parbati Chaudhury, whose piece Good Girl looks at why some women and girls in the global South Asian community find it difficult to talk about romantic relationships with their parents/guardians; Bradford’s Sharena Lee Satti who has produced a series of poems and imagery reflecting on homelessness in the city; Hiten Mistry, who uses Bharatanatyam to explore the subject of male depression in Ode to Meloncholy; and Leeds-based contemporary dance choreographer Rachel Clarke, whose White Noise examines how we communicate with each other and BSL/deaf/hard of hearing culture.

Don’t miss this chance to see new work from some of the most exciting emerging talent in the UK!

This performance also features a post-show discussion.
