What does it mean to be multicultural? How do we experience the world through the lens of our accumulated cultural baggage? As more layers get added to this baggage, does it get harder to find ourselves within it all?
This brand new work is a classical and contemporary kathak story of migration and identity, set to a stunning score written by Shammi Pithia. It follows the journey of Artistic Director, and performer, Sonia Chandaria Tillu’s family, tracing her grandmother’s move from her homeland of Gujarat to the fertile lands of Kenya, and culminates with Sonia’s own journey to the UK.
