Keira Martin – Good Blood
In collaboration with Sioda Adams
Thursday 21 November – 7.30pm
Keira Martin returns to Kala Sangam, this time alongside her sister Sioda Adams, with a funny, heart-warming dance-theatre production that sheds light on family ties, the bonds that holds us together and the people that make us who we are.
Keira and Sioda were born and bred in Barnsley, Yorkshire. They trained at Northern School of Contemporary Dance and gone on to have successful careers, working for the past 20 years around the globe. The two sisters are inspired and influenced by their working class upbringing, politics, Ireland, dance and music. If there is one thing they both agree on, it’s that you don’t get owt without hard graft.
This performance also features a curtain raiser from Dance United Yorkshire’s Gradient Company.
Commissioned by Arts Council England, NSCD Northern Connections, 2FACED Dance Co The BENCH Seed Commission, Yorkshire Dance, Vincent Dance Theatre, Dance City and Spin Arts.
This performance also features a post-show discussion, where you’ll have the opportunity to ask any burning questions.
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.
