Details

Combining contemporary multi-cultural dance styles (including Bolivian dance, Kuchipudi dance, Afro-Diaspora styles) with atmospheric percussive world music and poetry, AJAYU Transitorio, is a live performance installation that explores the traditions, relationships with food, death and dying through the magic of traditional rituals and cultural practices.

Imagine the coming together of multi-cultural people to take a seat around a long, beautifully dressed table, with colourful printed cloths, flowers, candles and food. Together we all ‘break-bread’ and take part in conversations about our traditions, rituals, and memories of loved ones, all interspersed by live dance, poetry and music.

Through recent times, communities have endured trauma, loss and isolation. This work offers a chance for healing through bringing people together to eat, talk, connect, celebrate loved ones and remember those we have lost, and celebrate the strength in each of the communities we visit.

Presented in partnership with: Kala Sangam

This event is is 'pay what you decide', and you can book your ticket on Eventbrite.
