I Illuminate / Desolate

Rhythmosaic-Sengupta Dance Company

Thursday 28 February – 7.30pm

‘Mitul is an excellent interpreter of Kathak and modern movement and is an artiste to watch’

– Audience member

I Illuminate / Desolate is a must see show, featuring new two pieces from acclaimed Kathak Dancer Dr. Mitul Sengupta, exploring gender, identity and what it means to be free but lived trapped.

A beacon of joy, happiness and positivity, I Illuminate is a traditional Kathak performance infused with neoclassical influences to tell the story of the light within millions of individuals – the light which knows no bounds.

A contemporary dance performance with its roots in Kathak and classical jazz technique, Desolate celebrates the voices of those who constantly find themselves interrogated by society.

Mitul Sengupta has worked extensively in India and internationally as both a dancer and choreographer.

This performance features a post-show discussion.

From Spring 2019 the majority of performances at Kala Sangam are now Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!

We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Kala Sangam, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

All money collected helps pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.

Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.
