Royal Birmingham Conservatoire
Saturday 6 November, 7pm
£10 (students £7)
Performed as part of a double bill with Pablo Pakula: Yes No Black White (a snowflake sonata)
Indian contemporary dance meets late 19th century English poetry in this new dance and spoken word piece by Kali Chandrasegaram. Inspired by the work of legendary gay Midlands poet A E Housman, Kali portrays the struggles of being in love as a gay man in the 19th century, the grief of mourning a lover, and the comforting nature of trees and flowers and how essential they are to our well-being.
In partnership with Sampad.
