A co-production with mac birmingham and The Old Rep Theatre
Virago is a new dance-digital solo production from Sonia Sabri, Artistic Director of SSCo, collaborating with Ludic Rooms.
Virago is vibrant, compelling, brave and dynamic, exploring the light vs dark and the real vs fairytale versions of female existence. The work looks at female body image and in particular women’s complex relationship with their own bodies, teasing the audience with perceptions and misconceptions of the female and gender.
Sonia’s unique ‘Urban Kathak’ language combines on stage with motion triggered digital art, alongside a sound-score combining spoken word and music, with rich and diverse influences: a cacophony of voices from Europe, the Middle East, South Asia and Africa, representing and speaking to women worldwide, but appealing all of our humanity, regardless of gender and culture. The digital aspect is cutting edge and experimental, using image manipulation in a sensory dialogue with the live body.
Virago is uncompromising, thought provoking and humorous. It is both a protest and a celebration. Come and be part of the revolution.
