Labyrinth brings together two of UK’s finest dance artists Sonia Sabri and Ash Mukherjee for a sumptuous performance of south asian dance, Kathak and Bharathanatyam.
The evening unveils two virtuosic solos illustrating the distinct power of each dance style originating from the North and South of India. Sonia performs her immaculate Kathak expressing the fluid, lyrical and rhythmic and Ash unleashes the bold, architectural and majestic language of Bharathanatyam.
The signature piece Labyrinth, was initially inspired by Woody Allen’s brilliant one –act play ‘Death Knocks’, he wrote in 1968 for two characters. Sonia and Ash enter an arresting dialogue with their contrasting dance styles centered around opposites: dark – light, negative –positive, material –spiritual. With haunting music score by internationally acclaimed Sarvar Sabri, this high energetic collaboration with provocative drama, skill and speed leaves audiences mesmerised and emotionally charged.
