Jaivant Patel Dance
Thursday 2 May 2019 – 7.30pm
“You danced beautifully, taking the audience on a journey from pure form to real life stories” – Audience member
British Indian artist, Jaivant Patel presents a captivating evening of solo Kathak and Contemporary dance.
Rooted in his own experience of being a homosexual man of dual heritage, Jaivant offers a fresh perspective on South Asian LGBTQ+ narratives, faith and spirituality. The evening celebrates two cultures and the intersectionality of living in one, while paying tribute to traditions, heritage and often untold stories of another.
This performance features a post-show discussion.
YAATRA is supported by Arts Council England with seed commissions from MAC Birmingham, Arena Theatre, Dance4, GemArts, Creative Black Country, Black Country Touring & SHOUT Festival.
Presented in partnership with GemArts.
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.
