YERMA - Amina Khayyam Dance Company
Wed 19 October 2016, 19:30 – 21:00 BST
The anguishing story of Yerma in Federico Garcia Lorca’s savage yet lyrical play about a woman who suffers the heart breaking social torment of a childless marriage,that forces her to commit a horrific and irrevocable act, is set to Indian neoclassical dance - Kathak.
Originally set in rural patriarchal Spain of 19th century, Yerma is made relevant by Amina Khayyam Dance Company for today’s new and marginalised communities of Britain and Europe.
Performed to spectacular live music with tabla, cello and vocals featuring worldrenowned musicians.
