How did a newspaper fashion the dancing body? What printed words constrain the dancing body constantly?
The evening will see complex rhythmic footwork, the story-telling element prevalent in the dance form, as well as a sequence danced upon a brass-plate, unique to the kuchipudi repertoire from India, shot through with commentary both social and political.
This performance goes on to examine how dance can tell you a lot more about a country's imagined identity than one thought possible.
This production is recommended for ages 15 and above.
The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today. Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
The Larkum Studio is accessed through the far side of the ADC Bar.
This venue is wheelchair accessible. More information can be viewed here.
